Upgrades to

It’s been nearly 18 months since we relaunched this website, and we continue to try to improve it. Many of the improvements were spurred on by reader suggestions — so: thanks!

Here are a few changes we’ve recently made:

1) We’ve added a Freakonomics Radio Archive page to make it easier to find or listen to any particular episode. Let us know how this page is working for you, and any further improvements we should consider. Also, on our Radio page, we have grouped our one-house specials by season. We have so far released two seasons (each with five one-hour specials), and a third is on the way this fall.

2) We have reconfigured the blog’s comments section by adding a “view all comments” button and paginating the comments so that you can skip to a particular page of comments.

3) There is now a “print” button on the blog so that you can print out individual posts.

4) There’s a “Surprise Me” button, for the blog, which you can access from the drop-down menu of the main “Blog” tab. It will take you to a random post from our archive, which is up to nearly 7,000 posts.

5) We’ve beefed up our video section, which includes all kinds of material (TV and live appearances, movie clips, etc.); it’s all on our YouTube channel too.

The driving force behind these upgrades is our awesome blog editor (and all-around MVP) Bourree Lam, with great design and technical work by Lorissa and Gordon at Being Wicked. Thanks, you guys!

And thanks again to all of you for the suggestions; please keep the feedback coming.
