In need of a topic of conversation for your weekend parties? The Dinner Party joins us on Marketplace for their Small Talk segment, serving up news that didn’t quite make the headlines.

This week: Marketplace’s Stacey Vanek Smith chats about H&M’s offer to take in customers’ used clothes. Ethan Lindsey muses on a new mash-up fruit: a pineapple that tastes like coconut. And, Chris Berube talks about how beer might help you fend off sickness.

Take a listen above, and share your favorite off-beat stories of the week; post a comment below or tweet us @MarketplaceAPM and @dinnerpartydnld.
