For Marketplace, July 15, 2010

Foreclosures keep climbing. People are out of jobs. So we start off with MIA’s “Paper Planes” — a song about those living on the edges of society. We get a bit more lighthearted later, with our interview on Old Spice’s ad campaign – think studmuffins and viral videos. The Dazz Band’s “Let it Whip” felt right. And also on this show, the Skatalites “Knock Out Punch,” Wolf Parade’s new track “What Did My Lover Say? (It Always Had to Go This Way), and Digital Disko by Eliot Lipp.

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?
