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.

Trivia Knowledge increase
Love this podcast and the increase in trivia knowledge from it. Some common sense if you would stop to think about it. Others are an absolute addition to knowledge. Great format also as it makes listening fun!

Best Game Show!
Without qualification, this is the best game show podcast! It really is funny, but it’s also entertaining and you learn so much while being amused. This show needs to come back soon! I will host it here in Rock Hill South Carolina to bring it back!
