Somber and balanced economic perspective on global geopolitics. Interviews are clear and insightful. Guests are well chosen and informative. Keep up the fine work.

Jim Pethokoukis does a great job

Excellent podcast covering a range of topics, in depth. Great exposure to new and interesting ideas and people. Agree that the production at the end could be improved; music covers end comments and is too loud.

Excellent podcast... one complaint

The podcast is among the most informative, thoughtful discussion format shows available. My only complaint is that every episode ends with the extremely rude playing of music over the guest’s closing statements. The music, rock from the 1980s, gets louder and louder until it’s difficult to make out what the guest is saying. It reminds me of how television awards shows play music as a signal to the award recipient to shut up and move off stage. It’s particularly jarring in a podcast since there is no obvious time constraint. Each episode runs for a different amount of time as it is. So it’s hard to see what the show gains by drowning out its guest speaker and rushing them off the digital stage.
