It's hot. All across the country. Probably will be this weekend too.

Earlier this week we talked with Daniel Engber, a writer for Slate, who defended the use of air conditioning. The vast majority of Americans have air conditioning. And a lot of you kind of love it, as you posted on our Facebook page. But there are some A/C haters too. Take a listen.

Tell us what you think on Facebook or Twitter.

“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
