About This Show

Freakonomics Radio with Stephen J. Dubner will be an evening of lively stories that explore the “hidden side of everything.” Freakonomics® has been on air, on screen, and in print, but here’s a rare chance to see its raconteurs together on stage. Economist, Freakonomics co-author, and St. Paul native Steven D. Levitt will be Dubner’s guest and together they will regale tales of surprising facts, and unsavory truths, including the upside of quitting, the ineffectiveness of modern parenting, and our obsession with predicting the future. People from Levitt’s St. Paul childhood will present the “This is Your Life” of how a Midwestern kid grew up to be an unusually influential thinker. Plus, a quiz bowl, and your questions! Like Freakonomics, this evening will cover a lot of territory – "most of it," says Dubner, "off-limits to sane people."
