About the Show
You hear Marketplace’s Kai Ryssdal [pictured] deliver the day’s business and economic news every night on 90.3 WCPN ideastream. Now, in celebration of Marketplace’s 25th year on the air, Kai Ryssdal’s coming to town on Friday, June 20 with “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Numbers” a very special live event that will help us all make sense of the numbers in our lives. Numbers in headlines, numbers without context. From the Dow to the NASDAQ to weekly unemployment, we’re bombarded with newsworthy numbers every day. How do we make sense of what they all really mean? This lively and irreverent 90-minute show will answer those questions with wit and wisdom.
Join Kai and Marketplace reporters Krissy Clark, Adriene Hill, Stacey Vanek Smith [pictured], and Paddy Hirsch, plus special guests, for a fun evening of insightful interviews, engaging storytelling, and lots of laughs. It’s everything Marketplace does best, but live on stage at Playhouse Square. Don’t miss your chance to “do the numbers” with Kai & co. Act fast—there are a limited number of tickets available, while supplies last.
Tickets are available for $30 and $50 each.
