Tess Vigeland gives the audience at the Dolores Winningstad Theatre in Portland, Ore., a warm welcome as she kicks off the show dedicated to teaching kids about money.

Her introduction is followed by the Live Wire! Radio Sketch Comedy Troupe, Faces for Radio Theater — the folks who dared to put tap dancing, juggling and ballet on the radio.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
