Marketplace is community-funded public service journalism. Give in any amount that works for you – what matters is that you give today.
This final note today. The first and last you will hear on this program about the current rage of standing desks. They’re catching on like wildfire here at Marketplace Global HQ.
And I get that they’re better for you than sitting. But the study I saw today that even if you exercise regularly, sitting for three hours or more a day will take two years off your life? Really?
Just for the record, by the way, I do this radio program standing up.
There’s a lot happening in the world. Through it all, Marketplace is here for you.
You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible.
