Marketplace Scratch Pad

A little housekeeping

Scott Jagow Mar 6, 2009

Just wanted to let you know that I’ve started a blog roll, which you can find on the Scratch Pad page. It’s a list of some places around the web that I like to read and that you might enjoy as well. Also, my latest After the Bell podcast is available.

You can subscribe to that here, through I-tunes or whatever you use. It’s free. Each Friday, I look back on the top economic stories of the week and try to make sense of what happened and where we stand.

We’ve tweaked the format, and for one thing, it’s shorter. It’s about 15 minutes. It includes clips from the Marketplace shows, but it has a unique podcast voice and style, which includes an opening essay from me. I begin this week, “Forgive me, Mr. President, for I have sinned.” I won’t spoil the rest. But Homer Simpson is involved.

I hope you can check it out, and your feedback/input is always welcome.

Here’s hoping next week will be better than this one. Enjoy your weekend.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
