Season 6, Episode 22

This week on Freakonomics Radio: Stephen J. Dubner celebrates the Super Bowl, America’s favorite secular holiday. We assembled a panel of smart dudes — a two-time Super Bowl champ; a couple of NFL linemen, including one who’s getting a math Ph.D at MIT, and our resident economist to tell you what to watch for, whether you’re a football fanatic or a total newbie.

To find out more, check out the podcasts from which this hour was drawn: “An Egghead’s Guide to the Superbowl” and “What Do Skating Rinks, Ultimate Frisbee, and the World Have in Common?.”
