favorite

this is my favorite podcast. super interesting, i wish it was more frequent. a link to this podcast is my go-to response to liberals telling me "youre such an idealist dreamer lol learn economics dummy"
we DO understand economics. the idea that socialism is against basic economics is a lie propogated by the bourgeoise to attract smug intellectuals to capitalism. this podcast is also super informative, and it helps me give my non-leftist friends a peek into the way we think about economic issues and philosophies and why we chose this political tendency in the first place!
thank you so much, tom.

Great topics, great discussions, but

I enjoy the discussions, but the sudden sound clip interruptions are jarring. From the 5-star reviews here it looks like it doesn’t bother anyone else, so maybe this won’t change, but I hope it’ll at least be reconsidered.

Gem of a podcast

Been listening for several years for the always engaging and informative economics discussions. Listened to the sweet science episodes with Charles Farrell- brilliant. Thanks for the amazing work.
