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.

Entertaining

This is a grand little podcast, often with some interesting knowledge and largely entertaining.

But it's hard not to compare it to Freakonomics, and Freakonomics is so good, that TMSIDK will always come up short!

Somewhat interesting but lots of dead time

Most game shows have flashy colours, this is a podcast. I'll stick to Freakonomics because there's less filler.
