From the video vault, Kai does the numbers

Matt Berger Jul 18, 2011

I stumbled upon this pearl from the WBEZ video archive during a random YouTube search this morning. For no other reason than it’s funny and it’s only been viewed 5,000 times, I figured this video could use a second life.

The clip features our very own host Kai Ryssdal “doing the numbers” in the most unlikely of places. It was produced two years ago for a public radio fundraising campaign for the Chicago station.

And while we’re on the subject, perhaps this is a good reminder to donate to your local public radio station or help support Marketplace’s shows directly by clicking the “Donate” button at the top of our website. We appreciate your support!
