Let’s talk about ticket prices -- for big concerts, big shows, big sporting events. Here's a new idea: ticket prices are just too low.

That got your attention, didn’t it? Well good, because Adam Davidson, co-founder and co-host of NPR’s Planet Money, wants to shine a light on a dark corner of the concert world: ticket scalping. He wrote a recent article about it for the New York Times and he’s come to some surprising conclusions. He joins us to explain.
