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

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
