Tell Me Something I Don't Know
Journalism wrapped in a game-show package. Host Stephen J. Dubner (of “Freakonomics Radio”) and a celebrity co-host invite guests on stage in front of a live audience to tell us something we don’t know. The co-hosts — a mix of leaders in science, academia, sports, media, and comedy — grill the guests, and by the end we’ve all gotten a bit smarter. Each episode has a new topic, a new co-host, and new guests. There’s also a real-time human fact-checker to keep everyone honest. Think of the most crackling dinner-party conversation you’ve ever heard. Produced in association with Stitcher.

Fun little podcast to throw on
This is light listening. I used to put it on in the office instead of music because you can kind of go in and out of it and still have a good time. There should be more podcasts in this format.

Bring back the show!
I really love this Show. Is there any way to bring it back in a socially distanced way over zoom or smaller live group?

I love Freakonomics poscast and attended its event in LA before. I also love this podcast started by Stephen Dubner. He is such a witty and funny person. I learned a lot from his podcasts and they are the reasons I could go through bad days at work LOL. Highly recommend if you want to be 10 times...Read full review »
