MMT Episode

I'm not sure what this episode had to do with software development, but I'd recommend reading the economist Bob Murphy's review/refutation of Stephanie Kelton's book (on the Mises Institute's website).

Hopefully Scott will have Bob on the show to give listeners a more rational take on the subject.

Professional, applicable, and personable

Scott is a fantastic host and interviewer, and has a huge variety of guest experts. Been listening for years and never regretted the time spent - even if I wasn’t initially interested in an unfamiliar topic, I’ve always learned something useful.
