It's "Economics on Tap," our Friday happy hour edition of "Make Me Smart."

The two giant-est giants in mobile software are collaborating on a system to track contact between users and slow the spread of the coronavirus. But what are the privacy implications? We’ll talk about the system’s potential and its limitations. Plus, as part of our Friday series “Economics on Tap,” we’ll discuss Republican Sen. Josh Hawley’s co-sign on a proposal for the federal government to pay workers.

None of us is as smart as all of us.

No matter how bananapants your day is, “Make Me Smart” is here to help you through it all— 5 days a week.

It’s never just a one-way conversation. Your questions, reactions, and donations are a vital part of the show. And we’re grateful for every single one.

Donate any amount to become a Marketplace Investor and help make us smarter (and make us smile!) every day.
