Discover the hidden side of everything with Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of the Freakonomics books. Each week, Freakonomics Radio tells you things you always thought you knew (but didn’t) and things you never thought you wanted to know (but do) — from the economics of sleep to how to become great at just about anything. Dubner speaks with Nobel laureates and provocateurs, intellectuals and entrepreneurs, and various other underachievers. Special features include series like “The Secret Life of a C.E.O.” as well as a live game show, “Tell Me Something I Don’t Know.” 

Customer Reviews

Disappointing, arrogant stuff.

After having my interest peaked years ago by Levitt and Dubner's interesting book, i can not help but be disappointed by this podcast. Wading through a similar faux-science approach that the book used to fascinate, Freakanomics astounds with a series of supposedly relevant points that cohere to absolutely nothing. If anything is demonstrated by this podcast, it is the production teams intent to replicate other popular podcasts of the day that work by having interesting ideas presented by amiable hosts whose opinions might resonate. Hardly a unique concept, yet I found neither aspect here. That the program claims to present "the hidden side of everything", is particularly mystifying.

Very happy

Exactly as anticipated, just like the books, great to listen to, am recommending to mates (those with brains:))

Content good, but duration/regularity inconsistent

It's been over a month since the last podcast, and for some reason they do short podcasts then long ones. It's hopeless.

When you do get a long podcast, its v interesting.

However it's so inconsistent that you do, makes me want to just forget them. Please sort this out.
