Never fails to enlighten!

Russ is a wonderful conversationalist. He comes from a really well worked out free market perspective and has great conversations with people from right across the political spectrum. He engages in a sympathetic way that doesn’t shy away from disagreement and always goes really deep. A marvellous model of respectful and productive interaction.

I love this podcast. Russ is an interesting and fair host with a keen interest in economics. This is a must listen for anybody with any interest in economics regardless of formal economic education.

Intellectual treat

Great guests... and I like that Russ has a point of view and challenges sloppy thinking.
