For Marketplace, Thursday, October 6, 2011

Much of the tech world and beyond continue to mourn the passing of Steve Jobs. We considered the cult of Apple that he helped create, and what might happen to the company now that he's gone.

Meanwhile, Occupy Wall Street marches on. Oprah's OWN network looks to its second season. The average 30-year fixed mortgage has dropped to 3.94 percent. And Kai hopped on a bus down Sunset Blvd. to talk to people about jobs, this economy and their economic futures. Here are the songs we played:

  • Reality - RJD2Buy
  • We Are - AnwarriorBuy
  • Spectacular feat. Sharon Jones - Dujeous
  • Space - Like a Goodnight Kiss

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
