Marketplace has a new podcast for kids, "Million Bazillion!" EPISODE OUT NOW
Marketplace Scratch Pad

It’s alive! Sort of…

Scott Jagow Sep 18, 2009

My weekly podcast, After the Bell, is now available. Among other things, I talk to Infectious Greed blogger Paul Kedrosky about Uncle Ben’s comments on the economy. Let’s just say Paul thinks Bernanke wouldn’t make a very good weather forecaster or mad scientist. I also try to answer questions I posed about dynamic ticket pricing with the CEO of one company behind it. Check out the musical diversity of this week’s podcast: Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bobby Pickett (know what he sang?) and Harry Connick, Jr. If you’d like ATB to download automatically every Friday, click here.
