Freakonomics is such a great podcast because, like the book series of the same name which Dubner wrote with Steve Levitt, a frequent contributor to Freakonomics Radio, each episode digs into the field of behavioral economics, showing us humans stuff we never would have thought about ourselves.

We have two specific episodes to travel to on our podcast field trip today:
the first is the basis for Tuesday’s We Turned Out Okay episode about sandcastle building (go to weturnedoutokay.com/094 to listen), called How to Win Games and Beat People.
Secondly, an all-time favorite episode of Freakonomics radio: Are we in a Mattress Store Bubble?
The mattress store bubble episode illustrates all of the greatest things about Freakonomics Radio, which usually asks a question many of us have never thought to ask, and in which the answer turns out to be fairly significant, if you’re curious about why people do the things that they do.
Hope you enjoy our podcast field trip today!
