Goldman Sachs reported only its second quarterly loss since going public in 1999. Occupy Wall Street marches on, while Egyptian labor rights activists are growing louder with Mubarak gone. Timothy Geithner testified on Capitol Hill today Treasury’s handling of a small business lending fund. Oil companies are taking over in North Dakota. Amtrak ridership is up. And the team from Freakonomics Radio talks about what drives teachers to cheat on standardized tests. Here are the songs we played:

  • Take Me With U – PrinceBuy
  • We’re Young and Beautiful – Carrie UnderwoodBuy
  • Take the D Train – Pete RockBuy
  • Funky 24hrs a Day – AnwarriorBuy
