Freakonomics Goes to College, Part 1: A New Freakonomics Radio Podcast

July 29, 2012

Check out Stephen Dubner's latest Freakonomics Radio podcast called "Freakonomics Goes to College, Part 1." I joined to discuss my thoughts on whether college is really worth it.

Bottom line is that we live in a society where credentials matter and the Bill Gates' of the world who go on to create companies like Microsoft are few and far between. Hope you'll listen to the whole podcast. Enjoy!
