Journalism wrapped in a game-show package. Host Stephen J. Dubner (of “Freakonomics Radio”) and a celebrity co-host invite guests on stage in front of a live audience to tell us something we don’t know. The co-hosts — a mix of leaders in science, academia, sports, media, and comedy — grill the guests, and by the end we’ve all gotten a bit smarter. Each episode has a new topic, a new co-host, and new guests. There’s also a real-time human fact-checker to keep everyone honest. Think of the most crackling dinner-party conversation you’ve ever heard. Produced in association with Stitcher.

Fabulous entertainment

This show is pure entertainment. Dubner is a brilliant host, charming and quick witted and there is a seemingly never ending line up of interesting people and subjects.

The format mutates slightly at times which keeps things novel. Long may it last!

Interesting and hilarious

The best thing to listen to while gardening, knitting, doing housework, or relaxing in the bath. Love it!

Not quite the same anymore

I loved this podcast but since the format has changed to me the episode doesn't seem cohesive and isn't as funny and interesting. I miss all the different 'judges' and the comedy associated with the facts etc.
