Can a restaurant bounce back after serving Mouse Salad?

Beneath any situation lies an equation: "This fact + that circumstance = this outcome." Or so say Steve Levitt and Stephen Dubner, authors of the wildly popular book, "Freakonomics."

Now a new American Public Media radio series, "Freakonomics" shows us the hidden side of everything, blending pop culture with economics.

Host Dubner and regular guest Levitt, follow the thread and explore how seemingly disparate things are actually connected.

Tune in to the first episode of this VPR Saturday Special, "Freakonomics: The Days of Wine and Mouses," when we find out how and whether a restaurant can bounce back after a customer finds a mouse in her salad. Saturdays at 4 on VPR.

  1. I really enjoyed this program. I hope you can make it part of your regular schedule. It was informative and fun. And the interview with the owner of the restaurant was very inspiring...I wanted to work for him! What great vision!

    Thanks for this great program!
