"A look into the fascinating lives of the people in your catalogs."

I’m so excited that I found the Freakonomics Blog on The New York Times online. I loved Stephen Dubner and Steven Levitt’s first book and am eager to devour their second. I’ve been studying economics, anthropology, and public health for 3 years now. So, in an effort to become an avid news reader (esp. in those fields) as well as to enhance my recently developed interest in nursing, I’m going to work my way through these podcasts and articles, beginning with the podcast on America’s Obesity Epidemic.
