Freakonomics Radio

Discover the hidden side of everything with Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of the Freakonomics books.

Dubner speaks with Nobel laureates and provocateurs, intellectuals and entrepreneurs, and various other underachievers. Special features include series like “The Secret Life of a C.E.O.” as well as a live game show, “Tell Me Something I Don’t Know.”

Build Your SaaS

37signals started an indie SaaS revolution when they launched Basecamp and Ruby on Rails. Since 2004, thousands of entrepreneurs, developers, designers, and product people have tried to capture some of that success by launching their own web apps. But what does it take to launch a Software as a Service business in 2018? Follow Jon and Justin as they build & launch their new product:

Why listen?

“Jon and Justin share the hard stuff whilst they’re going through it (they’re currently building their SaaS) as opposed to “here’s our success story now we’ve completed it”. It’s candid, real and in the trenches.”

The Indicator by Planet Money

Planet Money launched in 2008 during the financial crisis and, since then, it has won many awards including a Peabody and an Edward R. Murrow Award in 2017 for our investigation into Wells Fargo's retaliation against whistle-blowers. We try really hard every episode to find creative, entertaining ways to make sense of the big, complicated forces that move our economy. That's why we made a t-shirt and traced the supply chain around the world from cotton field to factory; bought 100 barrels of crude oil and followed it from ground to gas tank; launched a satellite; and built an adorable algorithmic trading Twitter bot.

Why listen?

“It’s always interesting, with short, neutral shows focussed on one topic.”
