'Freakonomics Radio Live' Reveals Guest Line-Up for Four NYC Tapings, Oct. 19-20

Alexandra Petri, Angela Duckworth, AJ Jacobs, and more will join host Stephen J. Dubner at Joe's Pub

As Freakonomics Radio's first live tapings in a year approach, the show has unveiled the full lineup of special guests for their four Joe's Pub shows, October 19-20.

Host Stephen J. Dubner will be joined by a different guest co-host and fact-checker at each of the shows. Guests from the audience will come on stage and try to wow Dubner and his co-host with a fascinating fact, historical wrinkle, new line of research -- anything, really, as long as it's interesting, useful, and true (as determined by the fact-checker). At the end of the evening, the live audience will vote to determine the winning guest.

About Tell Me Something I Don't Know:

Tell Me Something I Don't Know is live journalism wrapped in a game-show package and hosted by Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of the Freakonomics books and host of Freakonomics Radio. Dubner has always had a mission: to tell you things you thought you knew but didn't; and things you never thought you wanted to know, but do. Now, he has a new way of doing just that. TMSIDK is still journalism, still factual -- but disguised in the most intelligent, entertaining, unexpected, and occasionally ridiculous conversation you're likely to hear.

Guest presenters come on stage before a live audience and try to wow Dubner and his co-host(s) with a fascinating fact, historical wrinkle, new line of research -- anything, really, as long as it's interesting, useful, and true (or at least true-ish). Each episode has a new theme and a new group of presenters. There's also a real-time human fact-checker to filter out the bull. Think of the most crackling dinner-party conversation you've ever heard.
