I make the podcast and broadcast “Marketplace Tech” and the weekly podcast “Make Me Smart with Kai and Molly.” I've worked in public media since the dawn of this century (which is crazy) and have produced, reported and edited all the types of radio and audio things. I served as the founding news director at New Orleans Public Radio, where I also got to host local story slams for “The Moth.”
