Can't Wait

I like what I've heard so far. Looking forward to more after the inauguration.

Smart and Funny

I have been a Kai Ryssdal fan for serveral years and I'm always happy when Molly Woods has a piece on his regular show "Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal" so for me this was a pairing I was very much looking forward to. It didn't disappoint. They're both smart and funny, but they're also very, very human. I appreciate their ability to breakdown the minutiae of selected topics without pandering to the audience and while letting us see a bit of their personalities without over editorializing.


They're only teasing us so far, and already this show is a delight. Subscribe to hear the witty, pointed perspective of Molly Wood paired with Kai Ryssdal's bright insights. In agreement or on opposite sides of the issue, these two have fantastic conversation chemistry, and Molly brings out the lighter side of Kai that we occasionally catch when he's at the news desk. I hope we get a Molly rant every now and again. If you don't know what I'm talking about, just wait—it is so worth the wait.
