Krissy Clark

Host, The Uncertain Hour

SHORT BIO

I dig into history, policy and human stories to help make sense of "making it" in America. I'm interested in the fundamental shifts happening in the U.S. economy, including the widening gap between rich and poor, the stagnation of economic mobility, the growth of the low-wage service sector and the shrinking of middle-wage, middle-class jobs. My reporting has appeared on "99% Invisible," "Reveal," Slate, "Freakonomics," "Pop-Up Magazine," NPR's “Morning Edition" and "All Things Considered," and the BBC.

What was your first job?

The highly gendered job of babysitting.

In your next life, what would your career be?

Oyster farmer.

What’s your most memorable Marketplace moment?

Jumping from a flying trapeze for a story about the social safety net.

What’s the favorite item in your workspace and why?

Some handwritten thank-you notes from listeners, the Krispy Kreme mug an old colleague gave me and the pictures of my kids.
