Did You Have Any Idea Kai Ryssdal Was This Cool?

I mean I did of course duh but really, what a guy: “A former hotshot naval aviator and Pentagon hand turned Chinese-speaking foreign-service officer, Ryssdal hit a record-scratch moment when his fellow F.S.O. wife got into business school, taking them from Beijing to Menlo Park. Shelving paperbacks for $7.25 an hour at a local Borders, Ryssdal happened to crack a volume containing listings for radio-journalism internships.” The host of Marketplace was a 34-year-old intern!!!!!! And look at him now!!!!!
