Bridget Bodnar

Producer

SHORT BIO

I'm a producer for “Marketplace” hosted by Kai Ryssdal. I run our “Corner Office” podcast and broadcast interview series and produce many of our author interviews. I also love working on some of the more creative elements we make for the show (audio Twitter threads, anyone?).

What was your first job?

A receptionist at a real estate office … in 2007. Things got interesting the next year.

In your next life, what would your career be?

Talent manager to a celebrity cat. Or a reclusive mystery writer.

Fill in the blank: Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you ______.

All the TV subscriptions … all of them …

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

The photo of my daughter from when she was about 3 weeks old and still in that "looks-like-a-turnip" phase. It makes me smile whenever I see it.
