ICYMI: Innovation, Margaret Thatcher and 7 stories you may have missed

Every Monday, one Marketplace staff member offers their favorite stories from the past week. Here’s a quick hit of some of the things that caught my ear on the Marketplace airwaves recently.

  • Should you include your race on your resume? Not something I’ve thought much about. As a white person, it’s easy to think sometimes that we’ve achieved a color-blind society. But of course, race can still play a major role in the workplace. We tackled the topic on last weekend’s Marketplace Money.
  • While we’re on the topic of innovation, our sustainability reporter Scott Tong did a nice spot on Tuesday’s afternoon show about what the impending bankruptcy of Fisker motors says about differences towards innovation on the East versus West Coasts. I liked this story a lot because Scott had a really original angle that I wasn’t hearing anywhere else in the coverage of Fisker’s woes.
  • Pausing for a moment for a nod to a really strong freelance piece on Thursday: Youth Radio’s enterprise reporting on what it’s like to have a juvenile record and be looking for work. I thought this piece had strong voices and gave me a great sense of how mistakes made at a young age can cost you so much.
  • And finally, to end on a light note: Sabri Ben-Achour did a fun piece on the lunatics, uh athletes, who run the North Pole marathon and how much it costs to pull it off.
