Nice!

I love the podcast! The length of the episodes are great and the perfect length for my short attention span! Keep up the good work! (Also, in you’re olympics episode, I was cringing every time you said sport climbing because I do competitive ROCK climbing twice a week)

Great show

Great show although your most recent episode is playing a bit fast and loose with facts. Yes, number of jobs increased BUT that brief positive win SHOULD BE EXAMINED within the context that a) those jobs were mostly part time NOT full time, usually with NO benefits or wage protection. Full time jobs HAVE NOT increased. B) the fact that NOT ONE SINGLE STATE has a minimum wage on which someone could live (without supplemental income, welfare, etc)

Essentially, saying “we have more jobs so the economy is growing” is EXTREMELY misleading and untrue, since those jobs do not provide what people NEED in a job - namely stability and decent pay - this is usually why people leave jobs.

Great podcast

This podcast is great! I learned about it from planet money and this podcast has lots of episodes that interest me. It also explains a lot about economics. 9 out of 10.
