For Marketplace, Friday, August 20, 2010

Ever ordered shoes from the online shoe retailer Zappos.com? We interview its CEO on today’s Marketplace and put together a shoe-matching game for you to play. And we have stories on companies unloading cash on mergers, bedbug infestations, traffic at Yellowstone National Park, and whether Groupon will go big. Plus, these are the songs we played on the show:

  • What’s the Crazy — OddiseeBuy
  • Taco Wagon — Young Fresh FellowsBuy
  • In the Aeroplane Over the Sea — Neutral Milk HotelBuy
  • Needles in the Camel’s Eye — Brian EnoBuy
  • Raspberry Beret (Extended) — PrinceBuy

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?
