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!!

Used to Be Less Biased

U.S. listener here who enjoys this podcast and understood it has a liberal host and slight left lean. However, the latest episode with Sadiq Khan just bashing Boris Johnson and the people of the UK who want to leave the EU was too much. The coastal elitism was on full display and that’s simply not good journalism or ethics.
