I’ve Always Wondered…

Have you ever wondered…

• Why 1 rotisserie chicken costs less than 2 chicken breasts?

• Or why hotels don’t give you a but you get a sewing & mending kit?

• What does the inscription on all of your zippers mean?

• And just who exactly invented the  you can buy at the stadium?

And we want to help answer them. Send your questions in now and starting in January we will answer them — online and on air. 

Listen for the first part of our series next month. We’ll select the top questions and let you, the listeners, vote which ones become Marketplace stories. 

Imagine it: One person asks a question, 11 million people will learn the answer.

And Kai will even give you a shout out on air if your question is picked.  How cool is that?
