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?
Pretty terrible timing having Miki Agrawal as a panelist when she is currently facing sexual harassment charges against employees...This is a hit or miss podcast anyway. Unsubscribing.
OMG, I feel smarter alread!Great podcast. Thanks.
I've listened since the beginning of this podcast and I love it!! It is entertaining and informative. I love the panel and fact checker. Dubner is a GREAT MC. Keep doing what you're doing!
Stephen Dubner has brought us yet another funny thought provoking podcast. TMSIDK is a fun spin on the classic game show design. Do yourself a favor and listen to it.
Every episode has been incredible. Keep it up!
This podcast tries too hard. It tries especially to hard to be really funny. And it fails miserably.
I believe that you become the average of the people you surround yourself with, perhaps that's true of the podcasts you listen to as well- this would be one of mine!
Great show in a game show form. Keep up the good work Mr Dubner.
For the most part I was enjoying this podcast but after each episode I was left wondering about the accuracy of the so called unknown facts and the cedibility of the "fact-checker". The episode, Atheletes' Feats put me over the edge. As an avid pool player I cringed when your so-called fact checker attempted to check the facts of the name-change from billiards to pool. He did not check any facts except for providing examples of baseball gambling. The fact he was to check? Was pool called as such because of the gambling relationship when it was moved from baseball to clubs and halls. Every source I have read states it was associated with horse racing, not baseball! ... Then there is the ever-present sex-minded comedian that can't keep her mind on the topic but has to interject some unrelated vulgar comment to appear "funny".
This podcast started off great! Fun, interesting people presenting neat things. The panel of judges were generally very reputable people. The fact checker did his or her job. The latest episodes, however, have gotten very...messy. It reminds me of how the show Myth Busters rose and fell.
The question inside us all, the ultimate IDK, will eventually be answered by this show. How many episodes will it take? We'll see. In the meantime we're all along for the ride--and what a ride it is.
Great show. You'll learn something new each time!
Great podcast. Great guests.
This podcast is so amazing
I listen to many podcasts, and this is far by my favorite podcast! I look forward to every Sunday when a new episode is released.
Dubner has made a full show from something that was tried on Freakonomics Radio andâ¦ it works. Great podcast, informative and entertaining. I think that the show has improved since its start.
Learn something you never thought of in a game show setting, but not as dry as Jeopardy! Celebrity guest judges are fantastic!It plays in Peoria!- ChuckPeoria, IL
You learn stuff all sorts of fun stuff. It's a game show that is interesting.
Love the originality. Great tidbits of information. Great program for the commute.
I like the show but it could be better. Some of the contestants bring opinions or unprovable theories. I wish there was a requirement that the contestants bring facts because that is what makes the show enjoyable. The things that go in your mouth episode was particularly rife with these "alternative facts."
