Airing on Monday, March 9, 2015: Today, the biggest credit reporting companies will announce changes on how they collect, check and report on the bill paying habits of 200 million Americans.

Plus, privacy advocates are concerned about a cyber security bill drafted by the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Plus, as Marketplace heads South to Austin, TX for SXSW, reporter Adriene Hill joins us to talk about SXSWedu, a festival and conference where education meets innovation.
