Thought provoking

"The Uncertain Hour" is a great podcast that focuses at a very personal level on how macro economics affects real people. I subscribed after one episode. The podcast focuses on a simple observation, that "sometimes the things that what we fight the most about are the things we know the least about." This reminds me of the quote attributed to Mark Twain: "It ain't what you know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so." I believe Twain's wise words may have also been quoted in the movie "The Big Short."

Interesting and informative

Captured my attention on the radio and I went home to look up the podcast. The cast does a great job turning in-depth journalistic work into a narrative that captures the listener's attention. In-depth, balanced research kept my attention... well worth a listen for your commute or run.
