Johanna Blakley on Freakonomics Radio Live!

Lear Center managing director Johanna Blakley joins Stephen Dubner and co-host Angela Duckworth, author of Grit, along with special guests including LA mayor Eric Garcetti. KCRW DJ Garth Trinidad will be spinning tunes after the show.

Freakonomics Radio Live! is live journalism wrapped in a game-show package. It has the same kind of factual, inquisitive journalism that has been a hallmark of Freakonomics Radio, but it’s disguised in the most entertaining, unexpected, and occasionally ridiculous conversation you’re likely to hear.

Contestants come on stage before a live audience and try to wow Stephen and his guest co-host with a fascinating fact — a historical wrinkle, a new line of research — anything, really, as long as it’s interesting, useful and true (or at least true-ish). There’s a real-time human fact-checker on hand to filter out the bull. And the audience gets to vote for a winner!
