In his job, Kai Ryssdal takes the incredibly complex business news of the day and make it understandable to the rest of us. "It's incredibly intellectually challenging," he says, "but that makes this job fun to have. If you're not having fun hosting Marketplace, you're not doing it right." Ryssdal joins us to talk about about keeping the fun in economic news during a meltdown, as well as the art of landing a jet fighter on an aircraft carrier, which is, actually, something else he knows a lot about. Also, we'll talk to the former Goodyear manager for whom proposed fair pay legislation is named.
