Kai Ryssdal doesn't know what he's talking about - I am proudly a Republican, but yet, I do appreciate some of the programming on <a href="http://npr.org" target="_blank">National Public Radio</a>. It can be a bunch of softball liberal nonsense, but it can also be thoughtful good news radio. <a href="http://marketplace.publicradio.org" target="_blank">Marketplace </a>hosted by <a href="http://marketplace.publicradio.org/about/cast_crew/ryssdal.html" target="_blank">Kai Ryssdal </a>is not one of the good shows. It's meant to be like some consumer business news round-up, but I find it to be painfully pedestrian. I realize these shows are intended for a general audience, and Kai Ryssdal's style is sort of "laid-back-host," but his questions for his guests are terrible - at worst uninformed and at best trite. Other shows for general audiences like Charlie Rose or even super-liberal Fresh Air have much more insightful hosts who ask much better questions.
How to improve Marketplace? Make Kai read more books, or better yet, get a new host.
