For Marketplace, Monday, November 1, 2010

On today’s show, fashion editor Kate Betts talks with Kai Ryssdal about the comeback rugged menswear is making. We also learn some truckers are turning to YouTube to fill in extra hours while on the road. We have stories about how BankUnited’s IPO may attract investors, a legal twist in Canada’s maternity leave law, why banks want to unload foreclosures as fast as possible, and what businesses want in a government. Also, if you’re a fan of the Kardashian sisters, you can own their prepaid MasterCard. Here’s the songs we played:

  • Collector – Here We Go MagicBuy
  • Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death From Above (instrumental) – CSSBuy
  • Life’s A Dream – Built to SpillBuy
  • Framed With Gold – Graph
  • Scissor Paper Rock – Architecture in HelsinkiBuy
