For a while now, we’ve been doing a regular Freakonomics Radio segment on the public-radio behemoth Marketplace. In the past, those segments didn’t make it to our podcast stream. But that’s no longer the case, as of today.
If you subscribe to our podcast via iTunes or the RSS feed, you will now get a new Marketplace segment every other week in addition to our regular podcast. Since our regular podcast also comes out every other week, this means that Freakonomics Radio is now officially a weekly podcast. Like this:
Week 1: Freakonomics Radio podcast (usually about 20-25 minutes)
Week 2: Freakonomics Radio on Marketplace (about 5 minutes)
Week 3: Freakonomics Radio podcast
Week 4: Freakonomics Radio on Marketplace
Also, sometime in early 2012, we’ll be releasing our second set of five hour-long programs to public-radio stations across the country. If your local station doesn’t yet carry Freakonomics, I’d suggest you take advantage of the upcoming Halloween holiday and consider egging their studios.*
