A few times a week, we get an e-mail like this one, from Oliver Breidenbach:
I love the music you choose for the background of the podcast. Can you post a playlist on your site or let me know where I can find the music? I think many fans will enjoy that.
One reason we get this question so often is that the music in our podcasts is so good. So is, IMHO, the entire audio soundscape. All of that is primarily the doing of one man, David Herman, who is Freakonomics Radio’s sound engineer/technical director/trivia repository — and more.
As for where to learn about the music: we recently started listing the music credits in each show’s transcript, which accompanies the blog post published with each episode. Our podcast archive page is here. Enjoy!
