It’s been hot this summer: 102 degrees today in Little Rock, Ark., for just one example. So hot and so dry that people — our listeners among ’em — are actually changing the way they do business.

Take a listen to the thoughts of Susan Strayer, Charles Briggs and Jenna Hansen, recorded by our Marketplace team.

You can tell us if the way you do business has changed because of drought and the heat on Facebook and Twitter.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
