Intellectually challenging, relevant and insightful

An excellent podcast for those looking for an informed and educated debate on economic policy beyond the personalities. Excellent interview style, informative and current. An understanding of the past and a window into the future - the implications are lasting for the listener and one’s understanding on the political economy and policy in general.

Great to terrible depending on topic and person interviewed

As in the title. I listen to this weekly commuting to and from work. Anne McElvoy can be a bit of a pain in that she talks over people, asks some silly politically correct questions at times, and sometimes has her own agenda, although she has improved greatly in the last few years. Whereas I used to give her one star, now it's four. It can be a really great podcast, depending on the subject and person being interviewed. Highly recommended.

An interesting perspective

I subscribed to this podcast for a different perspective on news from my usual news sources it's a bit more mainstream than I'd like but it's nice to hear about the poor, beleaguered one percenters and their issues.
