In their books "Freakonomics," "SuperFreakonomics," and "Think Like a Freak,"
Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner explore "the hidden side of
everything," telling stories about cheating schoolteachers and eating
champions while teaching us all to think a bit more creatively, rationally,
and productively. The Freakonomics Radio podcast, hosted by Dubner, carries on
that tradition with weekly episodes. Prepare to be enlightened, engaged,
perhaps enraged, and definitely surprised.
