One of my favorite shows is Marketplace on NPR. This is an half-hour daily show that reviews the day’s events and contains stories that cover a broad scope of economics and finance. Some times, this can be a bit over my head.
Weekly though, there is Marketplace Money, which is an hour long and is devoted to stories on personal finance. It is really very helpful when it comes to understanding how world economic events can influence an individual’s life and then how to best deal with them.
On this last week’s segment “A Day in the Workplace”, they featured a story on a music therapist named Holly Miller. I enjoyed this segment much more than I usually do partially due to my personal interest in her profession. She also tells some very interesting stories, and the background music, whether intentional or not, also perked me up a bit. A placebo?
For those of you who are interested in the Met’s financial troubles mentioned at the beginning, here’s the link.
