Listen To The Story

This Christmas Eve, we're regifting one of our favorite interviews from the past year. Adam Conover's TruTV show, "Adam Ruins Everything," is back for a new season. His mission is kind of like ours: Challenging assumptions and questioning everything in a bid to make us all smarter. Doesn't that sound useful over the holidays?

This interview originally aired April 17. New episodes return Jan. 15. And don't forget, there's still time to donate to our year-end pledge drive!

This episode is sponsored by the Amazon Web Services, Mailchimp and Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
