(0:30) Emily Flippen and Maria Gallagher analyze Walmart’s aggressive push to hire more full-time truckers, as well as: - Meta Platforms working on a currency for the metaverse - Twitter’s incoming director: Elon Musk - Berkshire-Hathaway’s new stake in HP - Rite Aid’s tenuous future - Coca-Cola’s latest flavor innovations
(19:00) John Ourand from the Sports Business Journal discusses Tiger Woods’ impact on The Masters’ ratings, Apple and Amazon striking deals with Major League Baseball, and why ESPN has one of the best TV deals for live sports.
(33:30) Maria and Emily recommend three books (The Ascent of Money by Niall Ferguson, The Art of Statistics: How to Learn from Data by David Spiegelhalter, Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order: Why Nations Succeed and Fail by Ray Dalio) and share two stocks on their radar: Airbnb and Etsy.
