We ended the week on an upswing and we found out something about American consumers...you are back to spending money. Here's what we've got for you today:
- Consumers opened their wallets in September;
- The Social Security COLA is nice but, there is a but;
- United Airlines & Unvaccinated Workers in the news;
- A Boeing test pilot is in big trouble;
- Are cashless sales a form of discrimination;
- Stealing textbooks for cash? Yep;
- The Wall Street Report;
- So you hate QR Codes huh?
Those stories PLUS the Friday Fun portion of the program. For many of us it's the end of the work week so who to better join us for this hyper-local look at Stuff to DO in the Greater Des Moines Metro than Jeff Pitts the managing editor of Cityview Magazine. Join the "Friday Fun" as we riff about comedy shows we can not share the name of, the Latino Ballet, spooky stuff going on at Blank Park Zoo and other places. Hey, it's Friday and you deserve a break from the heavy news. Listen to that right here!
Thanks for listening!
