Episode 273 of 902 episodes

On today's podcast, we take a field trip to Barney's. (Do you have any idea what they charge for a t-shirt there?) Our guide is Claire Hamilton, a trend analyst at a company called WGSN. And we talk to Ed Jay, a senior VP at American Express. He gathered data about 100,000 people who used their AmEx card to donate to public radio, and told us what other kind of stuff they bought.
