Highly informative without being dry.

Wide range of topics, solid production quality, not politicized in any way.

Thoroughly Engaging Every Week

I've been a regular listener since 2013. EconTalk is one of my favorite podcasts. The discussions are engaging and thought-provoking. It's also a great place to learn about new books and hear from the authors. Russ is a great interviewer and open to changing his viewpoint when confronted with new information.

One of my mainstays

This is one of my mainstay podcasts every week, as Russ has an in-depth civilized discussion with someone whose work is interesting. Often it is an economist, but often it is a researcher in some other field
