Journalism wrapped in a game-show package. Host Stephen J. Dubner (of “Freakonomics Radio”) and three celebrity panelists invite contestants on stage to tell us something we don’t know. The panelists — a mix of leaders in science, politics, sports, and comedy — grill the contestants and by the end we’ve all gotten a bit smarter. Each episode has a new topic, new panelists, and new contestants. There’s also a real-time human fact-checker to filter out the bull. Think of the most crackling dinner-party conversation you’ve ever heard. Produced in association with Stitcher.

Joined by celebrity guests (Jason Mantzoukas, Aparna Nancherla, Patti Harrison, and more), they are taking over DTR listeners’ Tinder profiles, swiping for them, and sending them out on dates -- and recording all of it.
