Marketplace Weekend

with Lizzie O'Leary

05/04/2018: Luck, law, large trade fairs — and lots of allergies

How much of our lives do we actually control? We dive into that question this week and look at seasonal allergies and their financial burden, how one writer got more than lucky at poker and landed in the big bucks, and a peek behind the scenes at who really makes rules for what happens on the internet. Plus, how import and export businesses adapt to the threats of tariffs, and how one police department uses mindfulness to address concerns around aggression in its ranks.
