(U.S. Edition) With last week being the Dow’s worst since 2008, some people are puzzled and a little worried at Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s statement regarding his contact with the CEOs of the six biggest banks in the United States. Also, a new study from the Commonwealth Fund shows that while women in the U.S. pay more for health care than women in other countries, they’re not as healthy. Then, we tackle the subject of Christmas Music, specifically the tried-and-true "Christmas album" from a band. It’s a branding tightrope, as the members of the band Hanson told us. Today's show is sponsored by OrvisIndeedNetsuite and Wasabi Technologies. (12/24/2018).

We're still not sick of Christmas music, believe it or not

Dec 24, 2018
Holiday music is more popular than ever, but that doesn't mean it's easy to make jingle bells rock.
The brothers in Hanson — Zac, Taylor and Isaac — are reissuing their 1997 holiday album "Snowed In" this year. Their second holiday album, "Finally it's Christmas," came out in 2017.
