Critic Rating

Research psychologist Angela Duckworth (author of "Grit") and tech and sports executive Mike Maughan really like to ask people questions, and they believe there’s no such thing as a stupid one. So they have a podcast where they can ask each other as many “stupid questions” as they want. New episodes each week. "No Stupid Questions" is a production of the Freakonomics Radio Network.

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Mar 22, 2014

"Presenter Stephen Dubner, who is clever and great, challenged the academic about what this test meant. The really ace thing about Freakonomics is that there are so many episodes to choose from, episodes that unpick gossip, violence, exercise – all from an economic perspective."
