The world almost kinda makes sense now

I listen to a lot of podcasts, but Choiceology is the only one I do the little fist-pump happy-dance for when I see there’s a new one. Katy Milkman, the host since Season 3, is a pleasure to listen to, and the guests are top notch.

On one hand, as a casual student I’d behavioral economics I often feel like I already know a lot of what they end up saying. Yet the host and guests usually have some neat tips for how to live life better with these knowledge tidbits - and, as George notes in 1984, the best books are the ones that seem to be telling you what you already know.

Fans of Freakonomics, Hidden Brain and the like should dive into this with no problem. Even the newbie who can sit through the descriptions of a few professors doing little clinical experiments on unsuspecting grad students will have an easier time consuming this show than those, and there’s every bit as much to love.

I love the podcast

I found this podcast through an ad on Freakonomics. I knew I was going to love it as soon as I saw Angela Duckworth's name as a guest in a few episodes. I've listened to a few episodes now and find that most of the content is interesting and relatable. I also like the host Katy Milkman. The great thing of discovering a podcast that has been around for four seasons is that you have plenty to listen while the next podcast episode goes live.
