Phenomenal listen

Luigi and Kate tackle interesting topics with discipline and fun debate. Personal and engaging; it’s like listening to two of your smartest and coolest friends, which is the best you can say about a podcast.

Two super smart economist from 2 different bacgrounds debate respectfully

Title says it all. The two economists come from different coun tries, are of different age, and seem to have some different views on things and yet they debate intelligently and respectfully. Very refreshing and informative.
