Google has fired an engineer who sent around an internal memo criticizing the company’s diversity initiatives. On today’s show, we’ll talk about the role the First Amendment plays when it comes to what you can say publicly. Afterwards, we’ll discuss Nebraska’s increasing reliance on coal — despite the rest of America’s move away from it.

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?
