Tess Vigeland: And finally to this week’s Marketplace Money Piggy Award.

Our little blue plastic friend is heading to Cincinnati. Feels like we’ve been there already this hour, doesn’t it. Because we have! Remember Summer called us with a question about paying off her mortgage against the advice of her father-in-law? Good for her for thinking so far ahead about getting rid of debt.

But that’s not why I’m giving her a pig. Remember she’s also a baker? And I am not above bribing for cookies. So how about some baked goods in exchange for plastic pork, huh? I think it’s a fair trade.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
