Every week, Marketplace Weekend guests go long and short on topics from the week’s news, stealing some financial terminology to bet on or against various things in the world of news and business.

This week we have Mike Isaac, tech reporter for the New York Times, and Marketplace’s own senior tech correspondent Molly Wood going long on Uber unions and quinoa and short on food marketing gimmicks and Facebook news. 

To find out why, listen to the full interview in the player above.
