Description

Discover the hidden side of everything with Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of the Freakonomics books.

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.”

I found these burgers in my semi-small town's grocery store and local pancake house restaurant! Great to see options even in my town! I tested my family without telling them it was different. . . ..... 2 10yr old boys and a meat loving man..... . . . While they could tell it was a little different from normal, they LOVED IT!! My husband came home while it was grilling... I was nervous because it smelled DIFFERENT... but he said it smells DELICIOUS and after he ate it I told him what it was. We've changed our burger of choice from now on!! KEEP IT COMING!

Interesting episode. India had independent music industry in 90s for short span. But I guess it didn't work out economically. Today probably, Punjab might only have visible independent music industry in India.

Andrew Yang is either a stupid Luddite with no conception of human progress or a conman, bent on populistic euphemisms.

Very interesting conversation. I wasn't aware of the number of job openings out there being about a million higher than the number of unemployed.

It's my honor to have this comment listed as Comment #69 under the Freakonomics podcast. It's a moment I will not ever forget & one I can't wait to share with my unborn son. This was for you, Baby Joey. I hope Daddy made you proud. 😎👌💯👏

Just listened to 'The Future of Meat' .. great balanced story. What is missing from it is details for what other markets were impacted in the 40's as a result of the new textiles, the story of hemp and cannabis. This could be another part of the story that changed the landscape of textiles, the explosion of hemp propaganda and the laws inacted as a result.

Brian Sidiski Jobs are a means to an end. The end is wealth. Maximize wealth, not jobs. Stop fixating on that bullshit like some 19th century labour union.
