Rite of Spring Around this time of year, employees of every sort morph their job titles slightly. Chief March Madness Officer, perhaps, or Director of bracketology. The NCAA men's basketball tournament that starts Thursday will consume schools and workplaces, where picking the winners has become an annual rite of spring. Join host Mike McIntyre to talk about the phenomenon, and go over this year's best bets. Everybody into the pool, Thursday morning at 9:00 on the Sound of Ideas.
