Interview on Freakonomics Radio

A little while ago, I had a really fun interview with Stephen Dubner, host of Freakonomics Radio for a segment named “The Upside of Quitting” that will be airing on WNYC in New York City on July 1 and at least sixty-five other stations in different parts of the country (at different times). Another former Amish woman, Emma Gingerich, was also interviewed for this show. You can check for a station near you on this map


If you don’t find a radio station near you that will air Freakonomics, you can still listen to it on the Freakonomics website


Most of us know Freakonomics through Marketplace or the books Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics, co-authored by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner. Now they are airing hour-long segments on the radio that “explore the hidden side of everything.” I am very honored to have been interviewed for one of these segments. I just heard it for the first time tonight on the Freakonomics website.


I thought Stephen Dubner did a really good job, not only with interviewing quite a variety of people, but I liked his own commentary and the way he summed up the idea of quitting at the end.


Happy listening to people talking about the “upside of quitting.”

  1. This sounds like a great show – “the hidden side of everything.” I like it!

    I also like looking at all your speaking engagements over in the right sidebar. It’s a great book, and I’m glad you’re getting the word out!

  2. I started read You blog and I will making it when I would have more free time. In my region it isn’t common read or hear about people, who were Amish or even about Amish in general. Your blog is really interesting and I will continue reading.

  3. Hello All,

    Thanks for your comments. Rosslyn, I like that title, too! Thanks for your good wishes.

    Zim, welcome to my blog, and thank you for the comments you have made so far. I welcome any questions you have.

    Joanne, you can listen to the podcast, should you not hear it on the radio. In fact, you can click on the link “The Upside of Quitting” above and listen to it ahead of time.
