Kai Ryssdal, the Host and Senior Editor of Marketplace — the national business show airing weekdays at 6 p.m. on WWNO — flew in for just one day for a special event at Le Petit Théâtre on May 29.

After a quick meet-and-greet with some of the station’s major donors, Kai sat down with WWNO News Director Eve Troeh for an interview in front of a packed house, and then answered questions from the audience.

“Every word that comes out of my mouth, I write. And, sometimes, I amuse myself,” Kai said, when asked about his signature smile that you can hear on the radio. "Here's the deal: If you can't have a good time while hosting Marketplace, you're doomed."

He visit was fast, but more than that, it was fun. We have the video here — see for yourself.

Thoughtful, smart and funny conversations are heard every day on WWNO, thanks to your support, and we’re committed to introducing you to the people behind the voices you hear. Stay tuned for more!
