Marketplace gets Freaky this fall

Freakonomics co-author Stephen J. Dubner, American Public Media and New York Public Radio are joining to present "Freakonomics Radio" this fall, according to a press release from American Public Media Group posted on the Romenesko journalism website. The statement said the show will include "radio, podcast, web and live event programming imbued with the best-selling book's iconoclastic approach to everyday economics – an approach that has found new ways to catch terrorists (hint: they don't buy life insurance), and found the answers to questions such as, 'Which is more dangerous: A gun or a swimming pool?'" It will initially be offered biweekly, then weekly in early 2011.
