Freakonomics Radio has nearly 500 episodes in its archive. The decade worth of episodes will be available, across all platforms, January 17.
Stephen Dubner is the co-author of the Freakonomics books, he said this free release is Freakonomics Radio staking its claim on free access for all, during a time when podcast content is increasingly siloed behind competing platforms.
“In the old days, I wrote books, like Freakonomics,” said Dubner.“And as every author will tell you, keeping all your books in print is incredibly important. I have the same feeling about my podcast: I want every episode available to anyone, anywhere, anytime.”
The Freakonomics Radio Network produces Freakonomics Radio, No Stupid Questions, People I (Mostly) Admire, and is developing other podcasts.
