What Does Financial Reform Mean For You? Senate and House negotiators reached agreement on a financial reform bill early this morning. President Obama says it "represents 90 percent of what I proposed when I started this fight." But what will it mean for consumers? New York Times financial columnist Ron Lieber joins us to explain.

The Marathon Business: This weekend will be Seattle's second annual Rock and Roll Marathon. The popular event is expected to draw more than 27,000 runners. The number of Americans running marathons jumped nearly 10 percent last year — a record amount of growth. Also, there are more running events to choose from. As KUOW's Ruby de Luna reports, marathons have become multi–million dollar events. And it's not just runners who benefit from the races.
