overview

Join host Stephen Dubner of Freakonomics Radio and co-author of the Freakonomics book series, along with a panel of celebrities and experts, for a live event and podcast that's equal parts game show, talk show and brain tease. Think of the most crackling, unforgettable, inimitable dinner-party conversation you can imagine.

Audience contestants will present mind-blowing facts - an unheralded technological breakthrough, a new line of important research, a cultural quirk, a historical wrinkle, or perhaps just a great, unasked question. Dubner and the panel will then pepper contestants with questions, engage in witty banter, draw on their own expertise, and help make us all a little bit smarter.
