so fun and educational. highly recommend it
9 minutes and 40 seconds to the get to the first fact. I'll just keep listening to No Such Thing As A Fish.
Very entertaining "game show" with fantastic guests and wonderful hosts.
Brilliant! Hilarious! Very entertaining ððððð
Love this podcast. I wish I could see it live or even be a contestant someday. I hope you come to SLC.
It's amazing how much you'll learn from this silly and smart podcast.
I had hopes for this program since I generally enjoy freakanomics. Even though Dubner himself is fairly liberal, freakanomics does a decent job of hiding or even omitting political bias. The same cannot be said for TMSIDK. It is nothing more then a echo chamber for liberal confirmation bias. If Dubner wanted to make it a good show, he'd actually get some conservative or politically neutral panelists and have "contestants" outside of the realm of academia.
This had been generally safe family listening for the car until the recent "rivalry" episode that involved multiple instances of the phrase "sneaker f***ers." I'm not asking for censorship, but a little warning would be appreciated for my kids' sakes.
Always loved Freakonomics, and I can't stop listening to this show, but at the same time Dubner talking off script makes you realize how awkwardly pretentious he can be.
This podcast is funny and I love that the contestants get to really show of their knowledge
This is such a great podcast to listen to! It has lots of humor, lots of interesting facts and lots of great discussions!! This is on my top 5 I have to listen to! I am SO glad I found you!! Thanks for having such an awesome podcast!!
Nerdiest game show ever. Amusing and I learn something every time. Keep it up!
A fun format, and a well built guest panel on every episode. The live recordings let the listeners feel like they are a part of the show. Love it.
This podcast is amazing and hilarious and full of knowledge.
Creative and funny. Consistently laughing at the incredible things people know and how little I actually do.
Freakonomics, in a game show format, with panels made up of scholars and witty comedians. Even if you are not a fan of Stephen Dubner, or you have no idea what Freakonomics is. You should still hit subscribe and download all these episodes. You will be entertained, delighted, and find out something you didn't know.
I found this podcast like many others did, through a bonus episide in the Freakonomics Radio feed. After listening to the one episode I was hooked. Curse you Dubner, now I have to find another hour for a must-listen podcast. My commute is usually an hour, but on rare days that it's under that I'll sit in the car to finish listening to this podcast.This is a show where the contestants do a better job than the judges. If you're a tiny bit interested in true crime, astrophysics, linguistics, or any subject for that matter, listen to this podcast. Even if you're not interested in a topic you will be by the end of the episode.
Everything about this show is great - the panel, which always includes a comic, its fast pace, its sound bites of weird information, fantastic!
I really feel like I learn at least one new thing after I listen to this podcast. I love that! I didn't give the podcast 5 stars because I really don't appreicate the snarky political comments that are sometimes made on the show (often by the host). I wish they would remember that their audience members may be conservative and have differing opinions so avoiding the comments would be pleasing to all. It's still fun as long as it doesn't start leaning too far to the left. I'd love to see some diversity on the panel too. There's got to be one conservative out there that would like to be a guest.
Just listened to the Music podcast and I learned stuff I didnât know (and I thought I knew a lot about music!) Looking forward to listening to the other episodes. Thanks for making learning fun and engaging!
Thoroughly entertaining and informative, like the worlds best dinner party
I love the information i get from the podcast. The live format is interesting I'm sure if people go to a live show it would be a great time.Thanks for making the show!5 star all the way
for the show
Dubner is an amusing host and the blend of academics and comedians works well. Each episode will indeed tell you something you don't know.
Come on, "Icelanders believe in trolls because they're descendants of Viking rapists"... seriously? That's not even true. That's like saying all Christians don't believe in evolution. Fact check your rude, unfunny hosts.
Absolutely love it. Top notch. Dropping heat this second season. Enjoy.
The trial balloon episode left me unimpressed, but I am charmed and entertained by the first few episodes.
Read the title
Absolutely addicted. This should be a TV show!
TMSIDK is an auditory game show. If you like learning interesting (and often obscure) factoids then this is the show for you!
The use of the phrase "throat vote" at the end of each show makes me super uncomfortable.
Not only is it highly entertaining, but you learn just enough about a subject that you can choose whether you want to learn more or just move on to the next one. I love this just like I love everything Dubner has his hands in.
I've listened to this podcast a few times and just couldn't get into it. There are so many better ones out there.
My new favorite show ! Entertaining and you learn some great info too!!
The first season was full of variety, & I eagerly looked forward to each entertaining episode. Unfortunately the predominance of sexual innuendo and topics is what is most noticeable about the second season. Are we too lazy to make jokes about anything else?
Very interesting and the format is great. The final round is weak and could easily be done without. I've already recommended this to a few others!!
What a fun podcast! Thoroughly enjoyed the first episode I listened to thru my subscription to Freakonomics. As a random fact lover, I know I will continue to enjoy this series. Will definitely share with my readers this podcast!
I'm a huge fan of Dubner. But this one doesn't do it for me. I'm still listening but it's low priority
I love this podcast! It was recommended to me by a friend and now I'm constantly recommending it. It is smart, funny, and constantly providing new facts that I then rattle off to my friends. I love the panelists, always impressed with their knowledge, and equally impressed by the contestants. Definitely add this to your podcasts you subscribe to and enjoy! It's also under an hour so super easy to listen to.
Stephen is not necessarily a comedian and this show is not supposed to be a comedy show. Still, I think the game show format for a podcast requires a considerable amount of humor to be engaging.
Great informative show. Entertaining and educated guest.
Wonderful show hosted by a wonderful man
#TMSIDK = is a funtastic "podcast gameshow" for anyone and everyone who loves random factoids!This show will help you advance your Nerd, Dork, and Geek Skillset.
Its great to learn stuff this way!!
I like the concept and random tidbits are interesting, but the episodes are too long and some of the IDKs drag on and on. Too many rounds? Too many contestants? Give each a time limit?
