Fantastic! It was over before I was ready for it to be over.

Excellent podcast

Russ Roberts is everything you want in a podcast host. He’s informed, accomplished, personable, modest, and interesting. But he goes one step further and makes a real connection with his guests, making them interesting and meaningful to the listener in a way that only the best interviewers can. And like the other “best” hosts, he illuminates topics which don’t sound interesting on first glance.
