Freakonomics Radio partners with Stitcher for ‘No Stupid Questions’, a new podcast about human behavior
Freakonomics Radio has partnered with Stitcher to launch a new podcast – No Stupid Questions. Stitcher is a popular podcast platform with a growing network of original content.
The show is hosted by Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author, journalist, and podcast host. He is the co-author of the best-selling Freakonomics books (with Steven Levitt) and host of Freakonomics Radio. On Freakonomics Radio, Dubner speaks with Nobel laureates and provocateurs, intellectuals, and entrepreneurs to explore the hidden side of everything. The show gets 8 million global monthly downloads and is heard by millions more on NPR stations and other radio outlets.
His co-host is Angela Duckworth, a research psychologist. Duckworth is the founder and CEO of Character Lab, a non-profit whose mission is to advance scientific insights that help children thrive. Her book Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance is a No. 1 New York Times bestseller.
No Stupid Questions
Stephen Dubner and Angela Duckworth have spent years exploring the weird and wonderful ways in which humans behave — Dubner as the host of Freakonomics Radio, Duckworth as a research psychologist and author of Grit. They both like to ask a lot of questions, and have come to believe there’s really no such thing as a stupid one. With No Stupid Questions, they put this belief to the test, with conversations ranging from friendship and parenting to immortality and whether dogs are better than people. The resulting podcast is incisive, humane, and occasionally charming. New episodes each week. No Stupid Questions is a production of the Freakonomics Radio Network.
No Stupid Questions premieres May 18 (the trailer is out already), with new episodes available every Monday. While the podcast is produced by Stitcher, it is not exclusive to the platform and is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and anywhere podcasts are available.
