It was a familiar voice if not a familiar face that came to the Wisconsin School of Business this spring when David Brancaccio, host and senior editor of public radio’s Marketplace Morning Report, served as the School’s business writer in residence. Brancaccio spoke with students, learned from faculty about their research, and moderated three discussions about contemporary topics—health care reform, tax care, and a forward-looking conversation with six faculty members called “What We Talk About When We Talk About Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, and the Internet of Things.” Of his three days at WSB, Brancaccio says, “This was an opportunity for me to steep myself in ideas, where others were sharing things that they thought were important to them—students and faculty.”
