Happy 10th To The Freaks


Freakonomics Radio will celebrate its tenth birthday this spring with a few surprises to be revealed soon — including a new spinoff podcast. Freakanomics Radio is a podcast that gets two million downloads per new episode.

Freakonomics Radio began ten years ago on a lark. Stephen J. Dubner, one of the writers behind the Freakonomics book series, had gotten a bit restless. At the time, podcasting was not yet on the mainstream radar. But he thought it might be a new and fun way to extend the “Freakonomical” way of thinking. The show is also heard on NPR stations all over the country.
