The medical simulation industry has exploded in recent years, and it could help prevent errors that cost the health care industry billions. Luxury fashion label Prada is poised to become the first Italian brand to enter the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. New reports show that four out of 10 people with a home equity loan owe more than their home is worth. Commentator Justin Wolfers spoke about how some economic numbers carry more weight than others. Students in China are preparing for a key exam that could determine their role in the global economy. And Tess spoke with author Daniel Orozco about his collection of short stories about work. And here are the songs we played:

  • Faithful – AnwarriorBuy
  • We Here – Illa JBuy
  • The Ghost Inside – Broken BellsBuy
  • Hot S*** (I’m Back!) – The Roots
