Freakonomics Radio Live!

Joe's Pub

October 19 and 20

Doors at 5:30PM & 8:30PM
Show at 6PM & 9PM

Freakonomics Radio Live! presents our live journalism game show, Tell Me Something I Don't Know. Hosted by Stephen J. Dubner, it has the same kind of factual, inquisitive journalism that has been a hallmark of Freakonomics Radio, but it’s disguised in the most entertaining, unexpected, and occasionally ridiculous conversation you’re likely to hear.

Contestants come on stage before a live audience and try to wow Stephen and his guest co-host with a fascinating fact  — a historical wrinkle, a new line of research — anything, really, as long as it’s interesting, useful and true (or at least true-ish). There’s a real-time human fact-checker on hand to filter out the bull. And the audience gets to vote for a winner!

Each show will have a "real-time fact checker":
Friday, both shows: Humorist and Washington Post columnist Alexandra Petri
Saturday, 6pm show: Author A.J. Jacobs
Saturday, 9pm show: Funnyman Mike Maughan

Friday, 6pm show: Food Network star Alex Guarnaschelli
Friday, 9pm show: Comedian Christian Finnegan
Saturday, 6pm show: Podcast host Manoush Zomorodi
Saturday, 9pm show: Psychologist and Grit author Angela Duckworth
