Customer service representative, Julia Furlan, mans the listener question hotline.

Rachel Cohn/NPR

Every day, we get dozens of emails, Facebook messages, Instagram DMs, and tweets with your questions about the economy. So, we created our very own customer service hotline to get to the bottom of what you wanted to know. Your calls are very important to us.

Our best and brightest customer service representatives (i.e. reporters) manned the phones, and hunted down the answers to your questions — big and small. Today on the show, we bring you information about the monetary benefits of being tall, the impact of rain on productivity, and the people behind those "We Buy Houses" advertisements. And more.

Music: "Mall Talk," "Burning in Me," "Elevator Muzik," "Cubicle Man," "Buddy the Grub," "Microtwist," and "Night Train to Cairo."
