For Marketplace, Friday, April 29, 2011

Kai spoke with chef Kurt Friese and agroecologist Kraig Kraft about what climate change is doing to chili harvests and how that’ll change the meals we eat. Even with the rise in popularity of e-books, traditional book festivals continue to thrive. Turns out the white iPhone, released to the public just yesterday, is slightly bigger than its black counterpart, and it could make big difference for accessory makers.

Despite the economy slowing again, stock indices are climbing, which just goes to show that the stock market is not the economy. Kai also spoke with former TARP man Neel Kashkari, now at Pimco, about the debt ceiling debate. The Atlanta Convention and Tourism Bureau wants Georgia lawmakers to reconsider an Arizona-style immigration law. And here are the songs we played:

  • Funky 24hrs a Day – AnwarriorBuy
  • How in the World – Family Force FiveBuy
  • Age of Inexperience – LotusBuy
  • Welcome to the Jungle (Guns ‘N Roses) – Vitamin String QuartetBuy
  • Hot Cakes – El Ten ElevenBuy
