George Judson | Pasadena, Calif.
I’m the managing editor of Marketplace. We live on the edge of a historic, even grand neighborhood in Pasadena. Our house is modest. The front porch looks out on apartments on the next street. Police helicopters are frequently overhead — it’s L.A. We watch the alley behind us for graffiti, dumped mattresses, other signs of stress. But it’s a friendly, tight neighborhood.
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?
