Hamburger giant McDonalds is hiring! That is, if you’re interested in serving up smoothies and cold frappes. A one-day hiring blitz for San Francisco area McDonald’s brought on 1,000 new part-time positions earlier this month and now Arizona may be the next to benefit. Also on the show: How would fuel efficiency labels affect car sales? Retiree insurance program kicks off; Rare earth minerals from China are rarer; A bribery scandal is marring the Pakistani cricket team; Thinking outside the cable box; and cities turn to billboards for new revenue streams. Plus, these are the songs we played between segments:

  • Criminal Conversation – James HardwayBuy
  • Coconut Boogaloo – Medeski Martin & Wood Buy
  • Hidden Treasure – Jonny Kaplan And The Lazy StarsBuy
  • Cigarettes Will Kill You – Ben Lee Buy
