Peter Balonon-Rosen

Associate Producer

SHORT BIO

I produce the narrative podcasts “The Uncertain Hour” and “This Is Uncomfortable.” I also report radio features for Marketplace’s radio programs, write for our website and serve as an in-studio and field photographer.

What was your first job?

Dishwasher

What do you think is the hardest part of your job that no one knows?

Video conferences.

In your next life, what would your career be?

Park ranger.

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

Snacks for the snack desk.

What’s something that you thought you knew but later found out you were wrong about?

How to actually pronounce the word “timbre.” Apparently it’s different than what you yell when a tree’s falling, but I’m still skeptical.

 

What’s your most memorable Marketplace moment?

Seeking out tornadoes with storm chasers for half a week to report a story about the business of storm chasing. Watching severe storms develop over the prairies of Nebraska was breathtaking.
