Free academic seminars

I’ve been wanting to hear academic-quality podcasts that dive deep into methodologies and meticulously trace out mechanisms. This podcast has been incredibly illuminating and refreshing. It’s like listening to academic seminars for free.

Fascinating, illuminating podcast

I absolutely love Probable Causation. I'm a grad student in a non-econ quantitative field, but I stumbled onto this podcast recently and I’m so grateful I did.

Dr. Doleac is an amazing interviewer, and the guests she brings on seem to represent an impressively wide cross-section of the work being done in law/crime/economics. Even with my very limited background in the literature and methods of this field, the discussions are accessible and deeply educational.

I highly recommend this podcast to anyone interested in the justice system, policing, housing policy, causal inference using natural experiments (trust me that one is way more interesting than it sounds!), or anything else crime/econ adjacent.
