Herm sends along a profile of Marketplace’s Kai Ryssdal, my favorite public radio host. It was published in 2004, back when he hosted the Marketplace Morning Report. I knew he flew planes, but not that he briefed the Joint Chiefs. I knew he worked in China, but not that he dropped everything and switched to shelving books in Palo Alto while his wife attended Stanford. Fascinating picture of a neat and interesting guy doing good work.
