Why we love our fans so much

Benjamin Davis from Greenville SC sent us a very sweet note today.

Instead of watching television, our family listens to Marketplace 3-4 times a week. A few days ago, as the show was beginning, our 23 month old daughter shouted “Marketplace, Yea!” Not only were we excited she shares our love for your show, but that was the first time she had gotten that many correct consonants into a single word.

Thanks Benjamin!
