Tell Me Something I Don't Know

A Society and Culture podcast featuring
 5 people rated this podcast
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.

This is a very fun and informative show to listen to. As someone who subscribed from the show's first episode, it has been interesting to watch it work through the initial flaws in its format to create something that feels timeless. The one challenge to the show is that its success is often dependent on the wit and engagement of its panelists. Perhaps in the future it will have a rotating set of panelists (much like Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me). Either way I love that every time I listen I learn something new from experts on the things they are most passionate about.
Hard to listen through an entire episode, but it's a fun time-kill sometimes.
