Tell Me Something I Don’t Know is a podcast hosted by Stephen J. Dubner, author of the Freakonomics book series. It’s equal parts game show, talk show and brain-tease. We're looking for people to present an “IDK” — an unheralded technological breakthrough, a new line of important research, a cultural quirk, a historical wrinkle, or perhaps just a great, unasked question — to Stephen and a celebrity co-host. Some shows are taped in front of a live audience and some are call-in shows taped in a studio. Submit your IDK pitch below. (If you have several, great! Fill out a survey for each one.) For more information about the show, visit the TMSIDK website.
Now give us a quick summary of that same idea, in 140 characters or fewer.
