Ryan Kailath [KY-lawth] is a business reporter at NPR in the New York bureau.

Before joining NPR, Kailath was a reporter at APM's Marketplace, where he explained trade tariffs using deli sandwiches, visited Athenian anarchists housing Syrian refugees, and used his birthday to explore whether or not "the coveted 18 to 34 demographic" is still a thing.

Before Marketplace, Kailath worked for public radio stations in New Orleans (WWNO), Los Angeles (KCRW), Marfa, Texas and more. As a freelancer, his reporting has appeared on Radiotopia's 99% Invisible and The Heart, WNYC's Note to Self, PRI's Afropop Worldwide, and others. He's produced podcasts for The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, ESPN, WIRED magazine, and more.

He was raised in Stanford, Calif., Bangalore, India, and Delaware County, N.Y.
