  • Even at restaurants that have managed to stay open for curbside pickup and takeout, or reopen with reduced capacity, tips are way down – 75%, according to the nonprofit One Fair Wage.

Marketplace

Week of July 13

Marketplace (PM)

  • Black and Latino people are more likely to get infected by COVID-19 than white people and are more likely to die once they get infected. CDC data obtained by The New York Times this month shows this is a nationwide disparity. One of the many reasons is because Black and Latino workers are much more likely to have jobs that can’t be done from home—like bus drivers or grocery clerks. Marketplace’s Jasmine Garsd spent some time in Brownsville, Brooklyn—where 80 percent of residents are Black and the infection rate is more than twice the New York City average—to hear from those essential workers.
  • We check in with Uli Nasibova, owner of Gelateria Uli in LA about how she and her business are faring.

Marketplace Special Series – The Economy, What Now?

APM is excited to bring you a new three-part Marketplace special series – The Economy, What Now? The convergence of a spiraling pandemic, unprecedented economic free fall and a national reckoning about racial injustice pushes us to examine what happens next. Is this the inflection point where we’ll see change in the direction of our country?

Ep. 1 – MARKETPLACE TECH – Technology: The Pivot Point
Air Window: Friday, July 31 at 2 p.m. – Thursday, August 6 at 11:59 p.m. ET
Host: Molly Wood
During this recession, technology has been keeping society and the economy afloat, from the platforms distributing food and masks to the physical wiring that lets us all stay connected. Biotech companies are working to transform the way we fight and cure diseases like COVID-19, and educators are struggling to find ways to make digital learning as effective as in-person classes. Marketplace Tech’s Molly Wood shares how current innovations might help us transition to our post-pandemic future, and how the crisis has underscored the inequity in internet access.

Ep. 2 – MARKETPLACE MORNING REPORT – Reimagining the Economy
Air Window: Friday, August 7 at 2 p.m. – Thursday, August 13 at 11:59 p.m. ET
Host: David Brancaccio
We are in the midst of a pandemic that has led to one of the worst economic crises in our history. Once the public health emergency becomes manageable, this country still faces one of the biggest public issue of our lifetimes: will we go back to business, inequity and the systemic racism we had, or will we draw a blueprint for the economy we want? In this one-hour special, Marketplace Morning Report’s David Brancaccio explores what a new reimagined economy might look like and what it will take for us to get there.

Ep. 3 – MARKETPLACE PM – The Economy, Reset
Air Window: Friday, August 14 at 2 p.m. – Thursday, August 20 at 11:59 p.m. ET
Host: Kai Ryssdal
The pandemic and the financial crisis have highlighted a fundamental truth: our economy has never worked for everyone. The Black unemployment rate has consistently been twice as high as the white unemployment rate, even during the past 11 years of economic expansion. In the last few months, 40% of Black-owned businesses have closed, and essential workers are disproportionately Black and Latino. Black Americans make up around 13% of the population, but they account for 23% of all COVID-19 deaths. Kai Ryssdal will talk with experts about what it will take to begin to end the systemic racism that has defined our society and our economy for the last 400 years. Through host interviews, relevant historic examples, and personal stories, the program will offer solutions-based ideas for a fully integrated and inclusive economy. It will also outline some of the institutional obstacles that any such changes will face.

If you have any questions about carrying these programs, do not hesitate to reach out to your Station Relations Representative. For more information about this special series visit APMDistribution.org.

Week of July 6

Marketplace (PM)

  • Kai talks with Marica Chatelain, Professor at Georgetown about her book Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America.
  • Kai talks to Edward Doyle-Gillespie of the Baltimore Police Academy about his approach to his job.
  • It’s a fact of housing in this country that while some thriving cities can’t build fast enough for their growing populations, others wish people would take their houses with them when they leave. At last count there were more than six million vacant and abandoned houses around the country. Many are in rust belt cities and rural areas that have been losing population for decades. Cities like Baltimore, Maryland – where the number of vacant houses has barely budged in a decade despite millions of dollars in investment. And as Marketplace’s Amy Scott reports, COVID-19 could make matters worse.

  • Kai talks to Jia Lynn Yang, author of One Mighty and Irresistible Tide: The Epic Struggle Over American Immigration, 1924-1965.
  • Kai talks to Pamela Newkirk, NYU journalism professor and author of Diversity, Inc. about workplace diversity. 
  • In early March, Marketplace’s Marielle Segarra visited the distribution center for ThredUp, one of the biggest resale platforms. It accepts items from peoples’ closets and resells them online, sharing part of the profit with the original owner. The company receives more than 100,000 items a day and uses an elaborate tracking and warehouse system to decide which items to accept, price, them, and get them out the door. Just a week later, as the virus lockdowns hit the U.S., everything changed. We join her on that visit and talk about what’s different now — and how resale is continuing to do well at a time when overall clothing sales have dropped dramatically.

Marketplace Tech

  • June 22: This week we’re reporting on how people are dealing with their internet service in recent months, including those who can’t afford it or who live in areas where it’s unavailable.

  • June 24: Even if you can get broadband, the costs can vary widely. We’ll talk about how that divide got to be that way and whether it bears any relation to the cost of delivering the product. 
  • June 25: Given the lack of competition in many markets for internet services, what’s the state of play on new entrants that could offer better service/lower prices? Is COVID speeding up or slowing down this process?

Important APM Programming Update

Dear colleagues —

I’m writing this note to share some important news with you. As a result of COVID-19, the current economic climate has pushed us to make some challenging decisions. After much consideration American Public Media has made the difficult decision to end production and national distribution of Live from Here.

Live from Here, previously A Prairie Home Companion, has and always will hold a spot in the hearts of public media listeners. After a 44-year run it was an incredibly complex decision to sunset this program. We are grateful to the entire Live from Here team and Grammy award-winning host Chris Thile for their exemplary work over the last few years in reimagining this legacy radio variety show.

Thank you for your support of the program over the years. 2020 has proven both a challenging and transformative year, forcing us to re-evaluate resources and consider different opportunities. American Public Media remains committed to working with stations and audiences in shaping new products and services for the public radio network, and we look forward to charting that course with you.

We understand that program changes are difficult, and we are committed to working closely with you during this transition. We will continue to offer repeat broadcasts of Live from Here through mid-September and carrying stations will not be billed for the show after June 30. More information about this transition period will be available soon, but in the meantime if you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to your Station Relations Representative.

Regards,
Chandra Kavati
Vice President of Distribution and Underwriting, American Public Media
