Humor, Intelligence, Entertainment

This podcast has it all. Bob is a lovable explainer of many things. Mostly economic, but you never know where Bob might go.

Don’t always agree with Bob, but…

Bob Murphy, the Happy Anarchist, surely takes some radical positions. Sometimes I agree with him, other times not so much. But he is such a genuine intellect, who steelman’s opposing views, that he’s an oasis from partisan hackery that passes for analysis these days.

I enjoy all of his material, and the recent series on Klaus Schwab was awesome
