Atlantic Magazine writer, Derek Thompson, is our guest for a conversation about and around provocative stories and subjects he's written about.
Derek touches on a part of the economy that's doing well but isn't getting any attention, the bizarre reason for the declining population of a few major American cities and the elite sports that give the advantage to rich, white high schoolers.
Mark and Derek also revisit his book, Hit Makers, the making of a hit idea (the science of popularity)
