Marketplace Scratch Pad

Back to school

Scott Jagow Jul 31, 2009

My weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available. Oh, sure, you heard all about President Obama’s “teachable moment,” but there were plenty of other, let’s say, educational opportunities in business and the economy this week. Musical assistance from Pink Floyd, Tom Paxton and .38 Special. In-house help from Phyllis Owens, Fiona Ng and Ravi Carman.

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?
