This episode of Tell Me Something I Don’t Know is all about “Stupid Stuff” — things that seem stupid but aren’t and things that don’t but are. Our panelists are:

James Altucher, author and host of the podcast the James Altucher Show, who is an honorary Kentucky colonel.

Miki Agrawal*, entrepreneur and founder of Thinx, who built her own digital slot machine in ninth grade…sort of.

Aasif Mandvi, comedian and author of No Man’s Land, who has a knack for selling sweaters in Florida.

Our real-time fact-checker is Sean Rameswaram, producer for Radiolab’s Supreme Court spinoff, More Perfect, who definitely knows how playground slides work.

*Agrawal talked more about her business on an episode of Freakonomics Radio. Since then, she has been the subject of some controversy, which you can read about here.

    If you don’t wash the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher how can you expect them to be clean when you take them out.

    Hi, I was wondering if there’s a place where the full transcript for the show is. I’m looking specifically for information on the ‘Poison Board’ IDK.
