Millions of email addresses connected to major companies like Best Buy and JPMorgan have been exposed after data firm Epsilon was hacked. Southwest continues checking its planes after a hole appeared in flight last week. McDonalds announced that its looking to hire 50,000 new employees.

We heard stories about zoning laws and successful uses of green energy in business, and interviews about giving to the Red Cross and Citibank’s new check processing system. And here are the songs we played:

  • Tell Yer Mama – Norah JonesBuy
  • Mela D – Shawn Lee & the Ping Pong OrchestraBuy
