All hail Tim Hartford.

The renaissance man and of BBC podcasts. Spectacular show.

Very good and quick

They are just 10 minutes long and one a minute of filler. Some are obscure and some obvious. I liked the one on cement / concrete and didn’t realize how important sand was to the world.

Such interesting information in a hurry

Long podcasts that dive deeply into a topic can be great but what if you just want to learn a little bit about interesting topics that affect our everyday lives and economy? This podcast does just that, piquing interest with short m, fascinating episodes. Very interesting!
