Great Interviewer

Russ Roberts asks great questions.

Enlightening, thought-provoking

A great Podcast which doesn’t pretend to have answers to all the questions but causes one to reflect. This is largely due to the highly intellectual approach of the host Russ Roberts. Although his political outlook is definitely further to the right of mine, his honesty, integrity and humility make it a pleasure to listen to his interviews - important in this polarized world where pundits usually scream at each other across the political divide.
