Playlist: Into the Summer Stretch

For Marketplace Morning Report, Tuesday, July 20

Our stories today were mostly pieces of a larger picture, headlines that began before the summer and have been unraveling since. BP takes over Prime Minster Cameron’s U.S. excursion; Elizabeth Warren faces longstanding tensions with Timothy Geithner; and the Senate considers stretching out unemployment benefits. A season of continuity deserves a summer sound, which we associate with a bit more of an indie rock flare. In that sense, Apollo Sunshine were a bright addition. And what have Beck and Broken Social Scene been up to lately anyway?

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?
