    100th episode special - The History of the Neoliberal Project ft. Colin Mortimer

    The Neoliberal Podcast celebrates our 100th episode with the director of the Neoliberal Project and the podcast's original host, Colin Mortimer.  We recount the entire history of the Neoliberal Project, from the very earliest days on Reddit and Twitter to the creation of the podcast, meetup groups and more.  We also discuss why we think the efforts to create a neoliberal community ended up working, and where the Project goes from here.  Thanks for your support over the last 100 episodes, and we can't wait to bring you the next 100!

    The Hammer and the Dance ft. Michael LeVasseur & Michael Donnelly

    The Hammer and the Dance ft. Michael LeVasseur & Michael Donnelly

    Epidemiologist Michael LeVasseur and data scientist Michael Donnelly join the show to discuss the path of coronavirus pandemic.  We talk about how various countries have responded to the pandemic and which have been successful, what specific factors make coronavirus a once-in-a-century threat, and which human interventions have the highest impact.  We also discuss the essay 'The Hammer and the Dance' as a potential path forward, and talk about how we can eventually recover parts of normal life and how the pandemic eventually ends.
    To all our listeners, stay safe wherever you are!  We're planning to keep producing episodes, recording from home, despite being quarantined in a COVID-19 hotspot.  Some will be about the pandemic and coronavirus, and some will be our usual content.  Thanks for listening and be well.

    Yale economist Florian Ederer and PPI Director of Technology Policy Alex Stapp join the podcast to discuss antitrust policy.  We talk about whether monopoly power is increasing in the United States, how we measure monopoly power and how we judge the harm it does, and whether the tech industry makes sense as a frequent target of antitrust anger.
