My name... Guy Raz.
NPR employee since... 1997.
Public radio listener since... 1995.
My job at NPR is...
Host, TED Radio Hour and formerly the weekend host of All Things Considered.

I'm not as... serious I sound.

I use social media to... convince myself that it's all nonsense.

I wanted to be... the President (I'm serious. And I'm laying it bare right here) ...when I grew up.

In my suitcase, you'll find... stinky barefoot running shoes long past their expiration date.

Tell Me More about... the cosmos because

If I could share a coffee with anyone, it would be... someone who doesn't have the H3N2 influenza strain. If we each had our own coffee, probably DJ Shadow, Katy Perry (you have a problem with that?) or Werner Herzog.
