Stephen Dubner (co-author of the Freakonomics book series) and research psychologist Angela Duckworth (author of Grit) really like to ask people questions, and came to believe there’s no such thing as a stupid one. So they made a podcast where they can ask each other as many “stupid questions” as they want. New episodes each week. No Stupid Questions is a production of the Freakonomics Radio Network.

Avis des utilisateurs
One of the best podcasts out there
Can’t say enough at how great this podcast is - I listen every week
Great energy, topics, research
The podcast is fun and informational. The shows on comparing ourselves to others and the influence of friends provide new ways to think of our social interactions. I would be interested to hear their discussion on Malcolm Gladwell's writing in Tipping Point on the three architypes in the six degrees of separation: Maven, Salesperson, Connector.
Fresh and Engaging
I look forward to this podcast every week. Angela and Steven have such a great back and forth.
