This show is amazing. The bring up topics I have never thought about. I have learned a lot.
Interesting almost every episode
Most informative and fun!
It may be an oldie, but it's a goodie. Plus, that theme music. I'll always have this in the podcast rotation.
Never fails to provide fascinating insight. Highly recommended.
This is definitely one of my favorite podcasts to listen to! Very informative and fun to listen to
Freakonomics was my first Podcast, about 5 years ago. Now I have a #NoNewPods rule. Too much anxiety when I fall behind (pods backed-up for days). I listen to each with a "does this add value?" filter so I can delete frivolous subscriptions that don't. But Freakonomics adds SO MUCH VALUE. I'll always have space on my phone for you.
I love Freakonomics and tend to save up episodes so I can binge on them.
Always great topics done well.
Interesting approach to all sorts of topics. Excellent information that will stay with you and help inform your opinions.
Been listening to this podcast for years. It's produced very well and has your attention from the onset to the close every episode. It has honestly changed the way I view issues at work and the world around me.
Answers to questions you always had but never know who to ask !
Freakonomics is always entertaining and really has taught me a lot about economics, science, politics, and everything in between. I will admit that there was one awful episode I heard once that was basically just an ad for underwear, but other than that I never had a bad or boring experience.
I'm going to be honest here, this podcast changed my life. This podcast helped me learn to challenge the status quo in a productive fashion, how to influence others, and even just some fun info. This is THE podcast to listen to, if you only listen to one podcast.
Always interesting stories presented in a great manner!
I enjoy the variety and the quality of information. Give it a try.
It feels like I'm eavesdropping on an engrossing conversation between brilliant, interesting people. It's the kind of podcast that you'll be rolling around in your brain for days after listening.
This is super interesting and cool
I think Dubby is running out of ideas. It might be time to let this die. He's going beyond civil discourse on subjects and giving crackpots air time. I'm down to listening to only about 1 out of 3 podcasts. With repeats, it means I'm probably down to 1 per month. :(. The quality of the show just isn't there anymore.
For economic insights on everyday issues, there's really no better podcast. I love that it's really well researched and has great commentary.
To offhandedly dismiss the impact of slavery in the assessment of the United States' wealth and rise to power is at best a gross oversight. You attributed this wealth inequality to the inclusion of all people in the English system compared to the Spanish system, which according to your research was based on exploiting the wealthy. Both systems were built on exploitation. The U.S. just had a lot more slaves.
This has great information and thought experiments for those who want to be informed citizens of the world.
I loved the books and I love the podcast. It makes me look at how the world works differently.
My favorite podcast to engage my brain!
...interviewer. Show is almost always of interest.
I love this podcast. One of my must-listen favorites. Excellent production. Keep up the good work.
I just wanted to thank you guys for the free entertainment! I look forward to this show every week!
Always excited when this podcast shows up in my queue.
Great way to learn about economics
I appreciate the good ones. They can be so good, I'd listen to it on repeat. The meh ones are kinda annoying, but worth listening to to get to the good ones.
Stephen Dubner asks great questions! ;)The approach to the different subjects is engaging and unexpected. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the comments about medical subjects that shows me that Stephen and Steven know nothing about medicine and have only listened to biased opinions. There is a lack of depth in looking at different sides of the issues. Which makes me question all the other statements about issues that I know nothing about.
I love this podcast! Listen to it to learn something new about the world.
I have been fascinated with Freakonomics since the very first book. Haven't missed an episode. Everyone needs to think like this.
This podcast explores different aspects of economy and lays it out in front of the audience, who don't need to know a lot about economics and trade in general
...ok, if I didn't subscribe to your new podcast the three other times you put it on your feed, making me listen to it again is going to frustrate me.
Used to be good. Now it stinks.
This pod cast should be required listening for all people! Thank you for researching the topics that most others just speculate on. I appreciate your care for facts.
Freakonomics was my favorite for years. But the topics are not as interesting and captivating as in the past. I love Dubner; but this podcast works best with both Dubner and Levitt to deliver and share on topics.
Stephen Dubner carries on the breadth, wit and educational value of his wonderful book. Thanks for the weekly entertainment!
A light version of economics in a short period of time. Sometimes I would like them to get more in depth. The time for each podcast falls just short of my one way commute. It gives me time to chew on it.
Interesting and relevant topics. Awesome moderating by Dubner to dig in to the issues.
This podcast has really dropped in quality of topics and presentation. So much so I am unsubscribing.
I love this show. They are so fresh, so on-point. Their perspectives are ones I always love to hear.
My favorite podcast! I listen every week
Love listening to this podcast! It's interesting, intelligent, relevant to daily life, and always leaves me feeling smarter at the end. The host asks thoughtful questions- of the material, the people he interviews, and of the topic's place in society. Have been going back to listen to all of the episodes I missed before I was podcasting!
I can't pick my favorite episode, I enjoy them all
Changed my way of thinking about the world. The long form interview episodes confuse me because I'm not always sure how they connect to the Freakonomics mindset.
Iâve been a listener since episode one. Always entertaining, surprising, and most importantly data driven! The world seem to need reminding that there is such as thing as objective fact, let freakonomics be that reminder!
Always entertaining and thought provoking, on topics I would never have thought to explore but that are nonetheless interesting.
