Enlightening

This is easily one of the best podcasts ive listened too, abd I’ve listened to a lot! It’s incredibly well researched, produced and edited which is hardly surprising given its author and production team, but it’s real triumph is making tricky subjects and concepts simple to understand. I found myself feeling outraged at the unfairness in our society, especially in financial institutions, and rooting for a new kind of hero - the referee. Brilliant.

Great in-depth look at a core feature of human society

The storytelling is compelling, but I'm here for the in-depth analysis of fairness and our ability (or not) to be impartial.

A must listen

I’ve always loved Michael Lewis’s great skill of telling stories in a very human clear way about difficult knotty subjects. It’s great to add this podcast to his list of achievements that feels like a natural follow-up to the fifth risk
