"Mark. Welcome to good together. We're so excited to have you thank you. Thank you glad to be here. Yeah excited to talk about all things mattresses and I love the name Cada mattress. It's a good. It's a good marketing the name I love it. It's wonderful So you know in the past Few episodes we've been having a few different founders of ethicon on sustainable companies onto good together to share their perspectives as to why they started their companies and really how they believe their companies are helping us reduce our overall overall impact on the climate and the environment. I'm so mark I wondered if you could just introduce yourself and give a little bit of information about Avocado true Will Um thanks Mark Abriel. I'm one of the CO founders of Avocado And I'm also the CMO chief marketing officer and Avocado Avocado started. The it's about four years ago basically And we started a basically out of the idea that There were lots of Mattress out there. Not As many as there certainly are now seeds in the space but there are a lot but there were very very few options is when it came to something that was natural organic or sustainable or some of the other all the different allied in angles around around around that that were accessible And so it gave us the opportunity to earn inspired go out and actually see what we create and so a group of US leveraged our skills and technology and marketing and all sorts of other things and we belt the brain and so in a number of years later Were significantly larger than we were before. Were able to do so many more things at the time ever us so before we jump into all things that are definitely wanted to hear about the specifics sickness. And what's so special about Avocado mattress and how you are building a different more ethical ran I want to talk more about Starting like what kind of things at an average American consumer on average consumer menu in the world. Would we should be thinking about when buying a mattress Obviously loosely Wanted to invest. It's a big ticket item so we have to think carefully about that right. So what do I do. Do I read a ton of online reviews. Views go to assume showroom with friends. So what are the key questions to ask yourself Anada question. I had should ash consider buying a used mattress and Olsen people should expect to buy a mattress in their lifetimes. You've got a whole lot less a lot. They let me to to basically When you when you look at a different mattress Obviously should be picking one. That's comfortable for you and buying a mattress is a lot like buying any others sort of chronic in that there's a lot of subjectivity. That goes to it so that that goes with it but generally speaking when you're looking for a mattress a slightly firmer mattress tends to be better for you than a softer mattress is a lot of. What if you're looking for from a functional standpoint is keeping your back opry ally making sure the jets port and other things like that so those are sort of obvious things things to look for but You know actually it's interesting as we obviously have a very comfortable product Wouldn't be selling products and nobody would meyer mattress. But it's really not what we focus on. We focus more on on the materials on the environmental story that goes with social responsibilities story. That goes with it. We look at things more like the durability of our product. Tom And all of the other factors that go into it. Because we see this sort of basic comfort design and some of those other things is kind Donald Blake a given. Yeah I mean what can you do with a matching. What new design kidding Doing that make it black or gray or put a little bell ear tough there but you know it many ways you know. It's everybody is sort of focused on. That's the traditional way that the space would be is managed you know and and so Rather than sort of going that route we've gone out focused on on on really the materials on making and ourselves. Vertical integration. Everything that goes with it so it's kind of different way of thinking about so. Yeah have a follow up question. Listen to my five thousand dollars. So what humor's which terms than we should be looking for in terms of textiles and technologists something that role And maybe you can start talking about an annual generally speaking well. You know. There's something that you want to look for And of course we're biased in that we think you should be looking for organic and we think you should be looking for sustainable and healthy option. So I'm GonNa tell you those thanks to look for which would be things like the guts? Would you think global organic textile standard in the cover. It really should be one hundred under percents. Cotton there's really no reason to ebony other Ali Esther of things in there And then you should also be looking at what what other Sort of filler. Stuffing materials avenue for example used wool or wool is also a global organic textile standard. What's and You know because a lot of places used things POLYESTER MR fills in all sorts of other things You should also be looking at the flame retardants. It's a really really significant piece. That goes with it because the mattress I have to pass. Certain flame retardants a flame retardants he standard set by law in the United States. And so that that means there's really only two ways to do it. Use Chemical sprays or use something called like a fire sock which is something that doesn't burn and so that means anything defrost sprayed-on chemicals to fiberglass to all sorts of different things which can release the Oh sees off gas and so that he sort of go down a scary rabbit hole stuff. So you WanNa look at what the flame retardant is and then you want to look at the phone materials now we we believe that that there are more renewable and sustainable features consider that far. We use latex six rather than polyurethane And then you need to look at the construction of it. That matters awful lot too because If you look at all the pretty mattresses that are in the online ads to see it. Looks like they're perfect. Piece of toast. Everything the thing is basically sprayed on grew together whereas we actually ty ours together often in and an assemble everything with more of a hands on process. So it's really looking at the materials constructions. What's in it what's not you really league? It really does matter. If you consider is spent a third of your life in bed and it's a product that you're gonNA be so intimately in contact with your face will be right next to breathing in everything that comes off of it It only makes sense that of all the things in your house. It's humbly one of the most important things to make a considered decision. Yeah I think that's a great point mark and I one thing that I think we often get with. There's always going to be. Yeah this this tussle with for consumers between price and You know wanting to have something that's quality and also responsible to the environment and so you know I appreciate that you That you think through all all of these different factors for consumers and I think as you were talking about all of the different pieces One thing that came up to me that I think some of our listeners probably are familiar with is is is. What's so can you explain a little bit more about that certification Shen on and why it mattered to you in the Avocado team to make sure that you were getting out on on as many pieces as you could will dot says is just first of all? It's a thing it's a process. It's a third party body That basically certifies the the ecology in the Social Responsibility Angle of your which is something how we set our whole business so they look at Everything from what goes into the raw materials other Rome s decides in any chemicals that would be used all the way through into what is however the people that create the materials that were they treated. How ethical unconscious you are across Edwardsville? It's actually a holistic

"To Collinsville high school. Did you go to Edwardsville? Also, he went to sl. You Edwardsville briefly he dropped out his father was in the armed services, and they moved around all the time. So he spent like a year or so here, but he was actually in one of the first new wave bands in Saint Louis. Bad habits back in nineteen seventy eight. That's interesting too. I had no idea, and you go through a lot of these things. I'm Marty if you can see your book over here. I've March your book with a bunch of little things that I thought were interesting. So let me the big books. So let me open it up without, you know, throwing my microphone off the other thing about the book is it's not just artists. Right. There are important moments that happened. I did a profile on Steve shankman last year in e you think about the influence that contemporary productions had and then of course, Casey. You can't go, you know, throughout the country is still talk to classic rock artists today during interviews on my show people. Credit Keishi for their success. I mean, look at Ted Nugent rush in the documentary points set out that they did. But the influence a case she had on rock music coming from this community in the city in the mid west is really it's hard to put a number on it, isn't it? Right. I mean, people if you weren't here at the time, you just cannot imagine how unified it was that it was that they had the power to make or break any rock band. And as I said in there that it almost seemed like every every kid at the age of thirteen was issued a case she shirt, and he kept wearing it until he was thirty. Yeah. Well, I mean, I moved here in seventy nine in. I was the station that I listen to in. Chicago was wwl UP the loop which was a pretty influential station as well. But I was very comfortable in the transition to Saint Louis. The only difference was it was interesting. There are a lot of artists. Offer one artists that that got a lot of planes, Chicago that people here never even heard of in. You'll be familiar with. Because you're a music guy when I went to Parkway west, I would wear a shirt that said you Afo people thought I was talking about aliens or something like that. Well, the great Michael Schenker was in a band called UFO, and it was a successful. I don't even wanna say heavy metal band from England, but rock band, and they had great influence around the world, not as much here in Saint Louis, people didn't know them. But Leonard Skinner d- wasn't getting a whole lot of play up in Chicago. But here it was all about southern rock band. Molly hatchet, and all those acts to the case she really had influence on. Yeah. I mean, and and they also were very influential in the negative to that. They kept a lot of my favorite bands from being being heard, for example. Well, for example, Elvis Costello who they only touched for two weeks, and that whole story in and of itself. Yes. So what you're saying is like in in that early eighties period where there was a bit of a trans. With newer types of music. It was just like they kept in their lane. They knew exactly what they wanted. And they made a lot of money doing it. So you can't blame them couple of the other things outside of artists. Here the influence of Mississippi nights. I saw many shows at Mississippi nights, you even get into Cicero's here too. Which was another connection that people had but those venues in a lot of acts that still come through today. I can't remember who it was. I think it was. Eric church. I think mentioned the pageant. But there was someone recently the came through at a show that I saw him. They mentioned miss doing those shows that Mississippi nights. They remember those right. Yeah. All right. Let's see what else is on here that I mentioned Michael Stipe, some of the other things. Oh, here's one and anyone who goes to live. If you go to the pageant off, Broadway or old rock house or anything else in. I didn't know his history went back so far nineteen Eighty-one Beatle. Bob, explain to people who don't know Beatle, Bob. Why Beatle Bob is such an icon here in Saint Louis seeing live music well because he's seen more of it than anybody else. And he's danced that the Beadle. Bob thing that he does he looks like he's got a haircut like a beetle. I don't even know if his name is Bob is this. Okay. So he just shows up in the front row at a lot of shows, and he dances. And the artists have gotten to know him over the years to they'll point him out shows, and they'll kind of laugh and I've never spoken with him. I've stand stood right next to him at many shows and. Watches performance because he sort of has a performance. Yeah. It's it's funny because he travels to and so sometimes you'll see videos of him in the front at other city. Yeah. Yeah. Like in in documentaries or something like that? All right, go you go through Billy peak. It's hard to go through all this stuff to off Broadway, venue, all riverport. Let's go to that.

"Ten years ago, the financial crisis changed the global economy as we knew it. If you've been following our project divided decade, you've heard some of the many ways that crisis also affected people's personal economic lives in today's installment of our series. How we changed. We hear from shontae Ray talking to us from one of the three toy stores. She owns in the Saint Louis area in one thousand nine hundred five. I took a job as a clerk in a little toy store and Edwardsville while I was getting my BFA in sculpture, and just I feel like kind of became a natural retailer. My husband was very supportive and seemed like he was willing to dive in lead a toilet with me. So we bought three giant stores with thirty five employees and the future was wide open. Two thousand eight. The holidays can didn't come. We didn't sell any doll houses. We didn't sign castles, train tables at stopped, and we came out of that season with a what the heck is going on. What? What just happened? Part of our strategy during the worst part of the crisis was to go directly to our Bank and talk to them. They could see it going on with everyone. So it wasn't a surprise that we were also struggling and we renegotiated the terms of our SPA loan. In two thousand thirteen. We went to our normal Bank appointment and the bankers called the entirety of our of our loan. We were shocked and heartbroken. The Bank guy cried with us. We cried and we were crushed. We sent out a letter on a Friday afternoon telling everyone that we were closing our stores. And at that point, hundreds and hundreds of families came people like, what are you talking about? This can't be possible. You know, I had moms that are like my water broke in your store. As all these families were coming in the question kept coming up, well, what do you need? Like? How much do you need? And we, you know, we said, I, it's a lot. I don't know. We don't know what it what we need to keep going, but we were kind of forced to give a number. And so we said, well, if we had seventy five thousand dollars, then we could push the Bank off, but I'm not comfortable with that, you know? And that's kind of where we left it. My husband and I was are actually our tenth wedding anniversary pi day twenty thirteen. My phone exploded and they had raised eighty two thousand dollars, and we're giving it to me no strings attached. And we were floored. When you have a town that says, we really want you here. You know, it's a very powerful statement by their grace was the only reason we're here. Well, in my hard work. The company shanty Ray and her husband own is called happy up Inc. We've got some pictures on our Instagram that marketplace APM. And while you're there, tell us your story with the hashtag how we changed. Welfare has been back in the news lately with the White House council of economic advisers calling earlier this month for reform of social programs, like food stamps and rental housing assistance. But while welfare has long, been one of those hot button issues that people tend to have a lot of opinions about the facts about how the system works in this country aren't so well known over the last few years. Our wealth and poverty team has been working to change that in their podcast, the uncertain our marketplace's Chrissy Clark led an investigation into how federal welfare funding actually gets spent across the country, and the answers are pretty surprising. She joins me now with an update on her reporting. Hi Chrissy. Hey, Amy. So we use the word welfare to mean a lot of things. What are we talking about specifically today? Yeah, so it can be used to refer to everything from food stamps, Medicaid. But what we're talking about right now is the program known as temporary assistance for needy families or Tanith. And this is the federal program that provide. Ads, cash assistance to poor families after welfare reform in nineteen, Ninety-six cash assistance, stop being something based strictly on need. And now there, lots of work requirements and time limits involved. The thing that changed is that welfare became a block grant. Capped at about sixteen point, five billion dollars a year. And now each year, the federal government gives a certain amount of town of money to each state states have to contribute some of their own funds. And then the key part is that each state decides how they're going to spend their pot of federal and state ten of money, and they are given a lot of flexibility and what do we know about how states are actually spending the money, so they're spending it in some pretty unexpected ways. The first surprise is that for the last few years, if you look at all the states combined only about a quarter of Tanna funds goes to actual cash assistance to poor families. Then another quarter of the funds goes to what you might call work, supports, things like job training. And child care transportation to and from work. But that's all to say that just a little more than half of Tanna funds go to what most people think of as like the core purpose of welfare, which is money directly assisting poor families or helping them get a job, where does that leave the other half? So that's where things get even more surprising. So states use some of it to fill their own budget gaps for unrelated things like pre k. and child protective services. And then there's this kind of crazy quilt of other programs that the money goes to for many years. For example, in Oklahoma, some welfare funding was going to marriage counseling workshops, not just for poor couples, but for anyone who signed up. And then Michigan is an interesting example about fifteen percent of Tanta funds there go into college financial aid and scholarship programs, and these largely benefit students from middle and upper income families, not just poor kids. So in fact, when you crunch the numbers, actually. More Tanith money is going to these college scholarship programs in Michigan than to actual cash assistance for needy families. Wow. Is that because there are just fewer families that need that help? No. So so nationally poverty has slightly declined in the last couple of years since the recession when it spiked. But the poverty rate is just about as high as it was back in nineteen Ninety-six. When we overhauled welfare around thirteen percent of Americans live below the poverty line. And that's about twenty four thousand dollars a year for a family of four. The other startling thing that I found in my reporting is that nationally very few families who are poor receive cash assistance. In fact, there are more avid postage stamp collectors than there are people who get cash welfare in the in the in the country nationally, just twenty three out of every one hundred families who live at or below the poverty line gets cash assistance in more than a dozen stay. As the decline is even more pronounced less than ten out of every hundred. Poor families gets cash assistance and what's behind that decline. So part of it is the time limits. You're just not allowed to receive assistance for as long even if you are still struggling with poverty. It's also just a harder program to navigate. Now, the application process is more difficult and more time consuming. There are these work requirements that can be hard to meet. So for families who don't have a lot of resources that might just discourage them from even applying in your reporting, what did you find in terms of what this actually means for families who are out there struggling to get by and could use that cash assistance? Yeah. So I've talked to people who sell their blood plasma to get by. They're also just the everyday tough choices that families face. I talked to one mom who on a given day might be grappling with whether to buy toilet paper or cough syrup for her kids because she just did not have enough money to buy both. So the hard question what is being done, if anything about this. So there is a welfare reform Bill that has been introduced in the house that would put more oversight on how states spend their money. And in the hearings leading up to the Bill, a member of congress actually pointed to things that we had revealed in our reporting like these college financial aid programs that we're getting ten if money that was going to higher income families. They pointed to that as one of the problems with how the program works. These days, the Bill had been expected to come to the floor this month. But in the run-up to the midterm elections, it looks like welfare is just too hot button topic to touch right now. So we'll have to see. All right, Christy Clark host of our documentary podcast, the uncertain our Krissy. Thanks so much. Thanks for having me.

When you think about buying this week's groceries, chances are Amazon, isn't your go to destination? At least not yet, but that doesn't mean food isn't selling on the site. Nisha novelty food products are increasingly popular on Amazon, which has kind of turned it into a laboratory for testing new food products. Vanessa Wong as written about this. She's the deputy business editor for BuzzFeed news. I asked her, I some examples. Some of their bestselling products include like protein powder and like weird chocolate covered almonds that you've never heard of and strange, like limited time or promotional offerings from some of the bigger food manufacturers. So like one of the big themes this summer, you might know this a lot like Jurassic World Food being watched on Amazon, which includes like a twenty five dollar box of Kellogg's. Frosted flakes that comes with a digital screen loaded with behind the scenes footage of the film. Film which you can only get from a box of cereal on Amazon. You know, twenty five dollars sounds pretty cheap. That's true. You know, it's interesting. I was wondering like who actually buys this stuff, and I found this guy who bought the drastic world, frosted flakes and admitted that like in no sense was it worth twenty five bucks? He could have bought the cereal and like gone to see the movie for less than that. Why are they putting some things on Amazon that you wouldn't find say in a grocery store, there are a couple of reasons. It's kind of like a lower risk environment. So at traditional grocery stores, they actually charge manufacturers fee to have their products on display. And so there's that, you know, there are a lot of kind of logistical complications and supply chain things that get in the way of launching a new product. And when you go an Amazon, you kind of have a lot more control over the situation in terms of like how many you sell, how many produce how it's marketed. The thing that is a little. Complicate about Amazon is that Amazon obviously has a lot of control over like algorithms and like where your things show up, which obviously has a lot of impact on whether or not consumers see them and buy them. And how does this fit into Amazon's overall strategy? I mean, obviously, with the purchase of whole foods, it's a bigger player in the grocery space. Is this part of its larger effort to take over? You know, when it comes to Amazon's strategy who can really say at this point, they are like all over the place, but in terms of their food strategy, obviously they're trying to beef up like what types of offerings they have for customers. And one of the ways to like differentiate themselves from brick and mortar grocery is to like, have a different product assortment. So you know, by getting food startups launch, they're kind of like novel and novelty snacks and big manufacturers to kind of like tryout promotional items and other things kind of like brings customers to your sites in. Talking about food, right. Well, how long do you think before we might get there where people go to Amazon for their regular groceries, not just their Jurassic world, frosted flakes I think we're a long ways from their e commerce has had a lot more success in other industries like electronics, apparel, things that ship. Well, groceries is complicated. I mean, aside from like snacks and kind of other dry goods that are temperature sensitive at cetera. It's really hard to get people like, you know, regular food that they can cook that day. The market share of like ecommerce and food is tiny. It's like less than five percent. Still the nessa Wong is deputy business editor for BuzzFeed news. Thanks, thanks so much. At last count more than six and a half million public school children receive special education services, how schools educate those children is governed under a federal law that covers thirteen disabilities. A lawsuit about that law went all the way to the US supreme court last year. The court's ruling changes. What kinds of services schools and districts are legally obligated to provide? Marketplace's Lizzie O'Leary went to find out what that means for the country's largest school district New York City. I hate it. I'm listening Heinsohn picking in a bright orange shirt eight year Old Aden's ready to show off what he's learning in third grade. French, his mom Alana Philip remembers meeting his French teacher. I said French, he studied French because in pre k. Aden was diagnosed with a subtype of autism. One thing that really comes out clearly is it seems as though this thing is going to take a lot of money, there was the occupational therapist. So Aden could learn to hold a pencil. The reading program at one hundred fifty bucks a session and a private neuro psych evaluate and that costs forty five hundred dollars out of pocket in New York City within sixty days of requesting an evaluation. Parents, teachers and other school staff are supposed to hash out an implement a student's individualized education program or IEP under federal law. It's the document that lays out exactly what services a student with disabilities gets. Here's Alana. Philip again, what I had to really fight full was one to one tutoring, an extra support as we know not. All schools have the same resources that's Laurie pod Vesper. She's an advocate at include NYC a nonprofit that helps students with disabilities access services. She says school, sometimes make recommendations based on what they can give, not necessarily what students need in the past New York students with disabilities were often taught separately in their own classes. But then in two thousand ten, they changed the funding formula. Now the district give schools more money if they keep kids with disabilities in mainstream classrooms. The idea being that if you educate students with disabilities alongside their peers, they'll do better academically and socially, but it's just that enough again, Laurie pod Vesper who's a proponent for these kinds of classrooms? My gut reaction is no. There's still huge achievement gap between students with disabilities in New York City. In general education students, New York City schools spent three point, seven billion dollars on classroom instruction. For special education students last year about thirty percent of such spending and they're doing better at getting students classroom services than ever before. But still one in four kids don't get the full services. They're legally entitled to two families. Recently sued the district in a statement, the New York City department of education says they ensure students with disabilities have access to education in quote, the least restrictive environment, and they say they try to resolve concerns as quickly as possible nationwide. A lot of families have sued Jack Robinson Representative, Colorado family whose case went to the supreme court. You have this inherent tension between what the parents want and believe is necessary for their child to succeed. And you know, with the school district is is willing to do alerts financially or just conceptually the supreme court ruled unanimously that just access to education is not enough chief Justice. John Roberts wrote, schools need to offer. Services. So students quote, make progress appropriate in light of the child circumstances. But the first time children with disabilities are entitled to more than just the bare minimum, the federal law, which gives students with disabilities rights to an education also promises funding to cover forty percent of extra special education costs today, only fourteen percent of those funds have come through leaving it up to states and districts to figure out how and what they can pay for since the supreme court ruling the federal education department released guidance to schools clarifying their increased duties. What we don't know yet is how that will play out for students like Aden or anyone else with a disability since divided by ten by ten. Correct? Good boy, high five for now, it likely still means a lot of hard work in New York. I'm Lizzie O'Leary for marketplace. You can check out a marketplace, special report on the economics of disability. Fear more stories about work and healthcare, all at marketplace, dot org. And this final note, the new York, Daily News lost half of its newsroom staff today, publisher trunk Inc, which also owns the Chicago Tribune and the Baltimore Sun among others bought the tabloid last year for just a dollar plus the outstanding debt in a note sent to employees.
