Awesome

Excellent podcast with interesting stories and people! Steven Dubner is very intelligent and seems to know something about every topic and does his research! You will consistently learn something new from this podcast and I highly recommend it to everyone!

It Seems To Get Worse

I’ve listened to Freakonomics for years now. Over time, it seems to have abandoned its scientific bent for mass appeal. I also don’t think Dubner does a good job asking more direct and potentially critical questions of his guests, be they CEOs or researchers, leading to what feels like a sycophantic exchange rather than a thoughtful and pointed conversation.
