We're in a golden age of podcasts. Here are three I recommend for people interested in understanding how the world works:
- Over 700 episodes on a variety of subjects: healthcare, technology, philosophy, science, finance, and of course economics. The focus is more on the subject under discussion rather than the interviewee.
- Three recommendations:
- In Our Time.
- Conversations With Tyler.
- Economist Tyler Cowen interviews people from a variety of backgrounds. Unlike EconTalk the focus here tilts more towards the interviewee's personal life rather than just their body of work.
