From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Tuesday, June 10:

In Washington, the Commerce Department reports on wholesale inventories and sales and the Labor Department issues its job openings and labor turnover survey for April.

It’s the 79th anniversary of Doctor Bob and Bill W. founding Alcoholics Anonymous.

A House subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice discusses the state of religious liberty in the U.S.

A House Foreign Affairs subcommittee examines reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan.

And remember that action film with the bus that would blow up if it didn’t maintain 50 mph on Los Angeles’ freeways? “Speed” was released 20 years ago.

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?
