Numbers, numbers, numbers

Scott Jagow Jul 10, 2009

My weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available. As I looked through the stories of the week, my head was spinning with numbers. Let’s try to make some sense of them. Musical assistance from Violent Femmes, Feist and Aimee Mann. In-house help from Phyllis Owens, Fiona Ng and Hunter Ochs. If you’d like the podcast to download automatically each Friday, here’s the link.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
