Ever wonder what it takes to put together a day's worth of programming at Marketplace? Check out this behind-the-scenes video that captures "A day in the life" at Marketplace.

The video begins at 12:15 a.m. on a typical weekday morning at Frank Stanton studios and follows our overnight staff through the production of seven casts of the Marketplace Morning Report. We then shift to the morning reporting process through the close of Wall Street, when we're producing the Marketplace Index from David Brancaccio and our afternoon show hosted by Kai Ryssdal.

Enjoy!

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
