In March, Marketplace’s David Weinberg was the guest at our monthly SpeakEasy event. He and host Eve Troeh talked all things radio, from his time making stories for WWOZ, to pitching to national shows and podcasts, to moving to L.A. and working for a daily program. Hear an edited version of the evening, or dive into specific clips, all below.
