About the show

From the co-author of the best-selling Freakonomics titles, comes Freakonomics Radio, a fascinating and often surprising look at the hidden side of, well...everything. Each week Stephen J. Dubner explores the riddles of everyday life-from cheating and crime to parenting and sports-and reaches conclusions that turn conventional wisdom on its head. WNYC Studios is the producer of other leading podcasts including Radiolab, Death, Sex & Money, On the Media and many more. Find these and more great shows at wnyc.org © WNYC and Dubner Productions
