Ramblin Ramsey ,

This is my economics degree.

The books and the podcasts are so good, so well researched, constructed and delivered that I feel like I am getting a true education in psychology and economics as well as history, social sciences and sometimes politics. Stephen Dubner is an excellent interviewer who has a journalists ability to ask difficult questions and the results usually strengthen his guests’ points of view. I have no gripes except I want episodes daily!!

One of my favorites

I look forward to every new podcast. They are always interesting - even the ones I don't think I'll be interested in turn out to be very much worth listening to. You have a real talent for making different subjects easy to understand without any dumbing down whatsoever. Keep up the good work, and thank you.
Update - So happy to have Steve Levitt back. More please! Of the two of you together.
