Airing on Tuesday, July 21, 2015: The senior leadership of Toshiba, one of Japan's biggest corporations, resigned today after an investigation showing the company had dramatically fudged its profits. More on that. And it’s the fifth anniversary of Dodd-Frank. We look at the biggest accomplishment of the law so far, and the biggest issue it’s not yet gotten to. And as you know we’ve been talking to people about the tools that they can’t live without while doing their job — their "Pro Tools." Well, our sibling program Marketplace Tech is doing a series called Noise Makers. All this month they’re talking to musicians about a piece of must-have technology or gear that helps the performer or the composer make their art. We'll talk about some of the Pro Tools he’s discovered while talking to professional noise makers.
