15 FREAKO­NOMICS RA­DIO

PC & Tech Authority - - FEATURE PODCASTS -

WHAT IS IT? If you’ve read any of the Freako­nomics books, you’ll know what to ex­pect from this podcast. It’s a side­ways look at our es­tab­lished facts, with ref­er­ence to eco­nomic the­o­ries. How­ever, some­times the data teases out un­ex­pected re­sults.

WHY SHOULD I LIS­TEN?

If you en­joy hav­ing your nat­u­ral ex­pec­ta­tions chal­lenged with data as well as anec­dotes, this is the podcast for you. Spe­cial men­tion goes to The Church of Scionol­ogy episode (note: not sci­en­tol­ogy!), which ex­am­ines whether busi­nesses re­ally do bet­ter when they pass own­er­ship to the chil­dren of the founder. Our ul­ti­mate pick, though? The Sui­cide Para­dox, which digs into the num­bers in­volved in peo­ple tak­ing their own life.

HOW LONG AND HOW OF­TEN?

Usu­ally 45 min­utes to an hour, and you can ex­pect a new episode ev­ery week.
