Marketplace Scratch Pad

The cruel summer

Scott Jagow Aug 21, 2009

My weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available. I don’t know about you, but I felt pretty sluggish this week. I think it’s the dog days effect, and it seems to be everywhere. But there’s still some good stuff to talk about from the week. Musical assistance from Cephas and Wiggins, The Centurians and Bananarama. If you’d like ATB to download automatically each week, click here.
