Needed podcast

This is a great podcast covering great topics. I would enjoy it even more if the speaker was asked each time to provide a brief overview of their work and *conclusions*. Some of the podcasts spend all their time on why the speaker chose their topic or otherwise delving deep into the backstory of the research, and the overall findings and conclusions of the work sometimes do not come through and we’re left wondering how, in fact, business elites opposed the New Deal and influenced it institutionally for example!!
