    Radio Specials Freakonomics Radio How Much Does Your Name Matter? -- When Harvard professor Latanya Sweeney typed her name in Google one day, she noticed something strange: an ad with the heading: "Latanya Sweeney, Arrested?" But she had never been arrested -- and neither had the only other Latanya Sweeney in the U.S. So why did the ad suggest so? Thousands of Google searches later, Sweeney discovered that Googling distinctively black names is more likely to produce an ad that suggests a criminal background. In the program, host Stephen Dubner investigates the latest research on names; Steve Levitt reveals what a name says about your economic status and race; and University of Chicago political scientist Eric Oliver explains why a baby named Cody is likely to have conservative parents, while Leif was probably born into a liberal family.

It was just the kind of note you might come across in Davy Rothbart's FOUND Magazine, a collection and celebration of fascinating forgotten and discarded items. Rothbart, a longtime "This American Life" contributor, author, and filmmaker, joins us to discuss his favorite found treasures, from love letters to old family photos.

In Libya, the operatives captured Abu Anas al-Libi, and in Somalia, the forces failed at their mission to capture a senior leader of al-Shabab. The program explores whether this marks a shift in U.S. strategy from boots-on-the-ground to a special operations-only approach.

    Radio Specials Climate One Corn, Cars and Cows -- Putting gasoline blended with corn in your gas tank can increase the cost of food on your kitchen table. That's the claim of farmers and ranchers who say federal policies mandating corn ethanol production raise the price of feed for American cattle, pork and poultry. Furthermore, transportation fuel including corn doesn't reduce carbon pollution much when its entire lifecycle is considered. Does corn have a place in powering America's future? How does it impact California's clean energy goals? The program hosts a discussion with Colin Carter, professor of agricultural economics at UC Davis; Neil Koehler, CEO of Pacific Ethanol; and Michael Marsh, CEO of Western United Dairymen.

    All Things Considered Welfare vs. Work The CATO Institute finds that, in 35 states, it makes sense to stay on welfare rather than take a low-paying job. But welfare recipients say what's discouraging them from working isn't a possible loss of benefits, but a lack of jobs, transportation and child care.
