Familiar Voice on Marketplace

Marketplace is one of my favorite daily radio programs. If you've never heard it, it is worth a listen*. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an e-mail in response to a story. (Feedback, both positive and negative*, is a great way to help programs, blogs, authors, companies, etc. connect to the actual end consumer. I'm a big fan of feedback.) Anyway, I got a call yesterday asking me to read or paraphrase my letter, so they could broadcast it in their "letters from listeners" section. Needless to say, I was pretty freaking stoked.

Unfortunately, Marketplace was preempted on KUOW today by campaign coverage so no one got to hear it. (I did, however, get an e-mail from a friend back in Maine that heard my 15 seconds of fame.) Anyway, for any one interested, you can listen to/read the story on their website or I've edit it down to just my blurb for archival purposes here. I don't know if this counts as my 15 minutes of fame, but it's pretty neat anyway.

(Because it fits in so nicely, I thought I would at least mention it for those who don't remember: A couple of years ago, I got a little NPR air time on Weekend Edition Sunday, doing their weekly puzzle (with puzzle master Will Shortz). That clip is archived here. Two "appearances" on popular NPR shows. Once I win that pesky Car Talk puzzler and do something significant enough to get Terry Gross to interview me, I'll have completed the circuit!!)

Hmmm, it turns out the circuit isn't completed without a hat-and-cane or softshoe routine on Prairie Home Companion*. Get steppin', Wren.

Nice, Wren! I wish now that I didn't stop receiving internet a week ago because I used to listen to Marketplace every morning while eating breakfast. Now I just watch the boring ocean. Congratulations! (and being interviewed by Robin Young (Here and Now) should take precedence over Terry - Robin's voice is way hotter.)

wren, um, congrats for being on the air, but wow, kinda harsh? not everyone has public transportation options available, maybe relative for the guy who gave it up for 30 days WAS remarkable

I'd be shooting for a little one on one with Ira Glass.
