Making economics more approachable

I am so glad I ran across podcast. Economics was never a subject I studied in undergrad, but as I am getting closer to 40, I feel that it is a subject I need to learn more about to better prepare me for my golden years (I am a registered nurse that has seen many families destroyed when those loved ones pass away & leave the survivors in financial turmoil). My goal is to better manage my money, find a way to actually afford college for my young son, and be able to retired without having to die in a government run nursing home after all my finances have been exhausted. Thank you Frank for making my financial future a little less scary!

Getting in the Delorean

I listen every week and learn a lot, even though I am not an economist. Frank Conway is a pretty accessible guy, but some of it is not easy to understand if you don't have some basic economics first. The guests are usually interesting and young, some still working on their doctorates, and a lot of them come from George Mason University. But I don't get the feeling that it's a ideological choice to feature so many conservative economists. Toward the end of the show, each guest is offered the chance to go back in time and most just want to visit with famous economists, and, I don't know, drink a cup of tea with them. Sorry, but that's boring!
