  6. More than the meatballs: The economic enigma of Ikea

    What would Thanksgiving be without a nice couch to go flop on after a day of gluttony…

    Consider the couch — or chair or coffee table — for a second and there’s a good chance it came from the yellow and blue juggernaut of the furniture world known as Ikea.

    But for all of its streamlined Northern European goodness, it turns out there are plenty of economic mysteries that go on behind the scenes at Ikea.

    Oliver Roeder is a senior writer for FiveThirtyEight and spoke with Molly Wood about his piece, titled "The Weird Economics of Ikea.”

  8. EPISODE 84: PETER BJORN AND JOHN

    In 2006, Swedish trio Peter Bjorn and John released their third album, Writer’s Block. For months and months after that, it felt like you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing the first single from that album, “Young Folks.” It was on top 10 lists for song of the year in places like Pitchfork and NME. It’s been covered by James Blunt, and remixed by Kanye West, along with countless other versions out there. Now, ten years later, Peter Bjorn and John break down the song and how it all came together, and how it almost didn’t come together at all.
