Description

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.”

Will you be addressing the current Nike ad campaign? It would be interesting to see how academics and athletes react. Thanks!

I found the lack of challenging questions very concerning. Most of her arguments were flawed and went unchallenged.

I understand that rewiring of the brain is possible. But did she ever actually make an argument against what we think of as a brain's hard wiring?

What? The socialist wants more government involvement? Real ground breaking work. The only thing I agree with this economist is we are in desperate need of patent reform.

Russia IS richer ... but it's still a thug nation with a 1950s sensibility.

I wish there was a more positive outlook on starting a restaurant, such as answering the question “does it ever get any easier?”

I wish they had *someone* from the other side. It's just a podcast of left-wing opinion, unchallenged at all.
