The Hayek Program Podcast includes audio from lectures, interviews, and discussions of scholars and visitors from the F. A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. The F. A. Hayek Program is devoted to the promotion of teaching and research on the institutional arrangements that are suitable for the support of free and prosperous societies. Implicit in this statement is the presumption that those arrangements are to some extent open to conscious selection, as well as the appreciation that the type of arrangements that are selected within a society can influence significantly the economic, political, and moral character of that society.

The Hayek Program Podcast is partially funded by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation on "Work, Self-governance, and the Challenge of Unsustainable Dependency." The Grant is for a three-year project to explore the themes of work and self-governance as well as the root causes and consequences of the modern shift toward a greater reliance on government efforts to solve collective challenges.

Efficient Way to Get Smarter

I love podcasts that make me smarter quickly. This podcast fits the bill. Hayek’s rich intellectual tradition is deepened here.

Stop saying “um” that many times (please) If you want listeners

Show hosts should have public speaking skills If they want their shows to get good ratings. Listening to the July episodes 2019 as my introduction to this podcast, I have not heard anyone say “um” that many times in less than a minute. It’s pretty distracting and I turn the show off. The show does not come across confident about its own message.

Great content, but...

I enjoy the topics and perspectives presented in this podcast, as it is often difficult to find in-depth treatments of libertarian theory and Austrian economics that aren’t too heavy or technical for the layman. The content is consistently challenging and thought-provoking.

I am held back from a 5-Star review by just one glaring issue: Even the best podcast is no good if you can’t hear it. The audio quality is simply bad, and often whether I’m driving, running, or doing just about anything other than sitting still in a quiet room, I miss half of what is said even at full volume. More than once I’ve deleted an episode after the first 10 minutes or so, just because I can’t follow what the speakers are saying.

Fix the audio, and this would quickly become a 5+ Star review.
