Starting this weekend, WFPL News will begin airing two new shows on Sundays.
The New Yorker Radio Hour will air at 1 p.m. Sunday.
The New Yorker Radio Hour will feature a mix of profiles, storytelling, and insightful conversations about the issues that matter ― plus an occasional blast of comic genius from the magazine’s legendary Shouts and Murmurs page. The New Yorker has set a standard in literary journalism for generations, and The New Yorker Radio Hour gives it a voice on public radio for the first time.
Freakonomics Radio will air at 2 p.m. Sunday.
Freakonomics Radio ferrets out connections between seemingly unrelated things. The program explores the riddles of everyday life and the weird wrinkles of human nature – from cheating and crime to parenting and sports – using the tools of economics to explore real-world behavior. Host Stephen J. Dubner discovers the hidden side of everything in interviews with Nobel laureates and provocateurs, social scientists and entrepreneurs.
