Broadcast Know-It-All

Ready your ears to get SCHOOLED, folks, ’cause I’m playing Fact Checker on Season 3 of the Tell Me Something I Don’t Know Podcast (starring Freakonomic’s Stephen Dubner)!

First Minneapolis episode: “Three Sheets to the Wind” with special guest John Moe. They named they episode after one of my facts! And about all the drunk talk featured in the episode.

Second Minneapolis episode: “Creature Comforts” with special guest Krista Tippet. That one has a lot of sex talk.
