No Stupid Questions

Aug 03 2020 30 mins 9.2k

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.

In general I find the freakonomics podcast top notch. Hate to say it but the give & take here is somewhat annoying & seem the lady is trying to hard to be interesting - but falls short by a long shot. She acts too cutesy - uppity - blah blah blah...

I enjoyed this so much somehow 😂. I had no idea what I was in for when I started lol. Who would have thought something about captcha would have started my morning off quite nicely. Thanks guys!

Nah. Maybe some things are interesting but it's typical conversation of two people. And you are left to feel like this awkward person on the party that tries to participate but cannot.
