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.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.
