    From What’s Your Problem?: Becoming a Dog Ramp Mogul

    From What’s Your Problem?: Becoming a Dog Ramp Mogul

    We're sharing a special preview of the new podcast, What’s Your Problem? from Pushkin Industries.
    What’s Your Problem? explains the problems really smart people are trying to solve right now, from creating a drone delivery service to building a car that can truly drive itself. Jacob Goldstein, former host of Planet Money, talks with innovators about the future they’re trying to build – and the problems they have to solve to get there. In this preview, Jacob talks with Ramon van Meer, who is trying to figure out how to grow a niche business (ramps for wiener dogs!) when a pandemic blows up your supply chain.

Emily knows nothing

I like the show for some fun one off fluff topics but def nothing particularly useful here. Emily doesn’t know anything about any topic they discuss and is a really bad representative for women - comes off as a complete bimbo who is hard wired to spit out the most progressive opinion about everything.

The shows real value is the Succession recaps and discussions about movies with a financial bend

These people do need to answer for their dangerous promotion of modern monetary theory, though - now that inflation is the highest since the 80s.

Still sad

Panel podcasts work well when it seems like the people like and respect each other’s opinions and knowledge. I keep trying this one every few weeks, hoping it has even a semblance of the rapport of other podcasts. I am always disappointed. Felix comes across as a mansplainer, interrupting the female hosts who just don’t seem interested in the topics or maybe not interested in talking to Felix. Maybe it’s also the topics or focus of the show. Is it personal finance? Large picture issues? I’d say maybe make it more “your money” than Elon Musk, who gets enough coverage as it is.
Can Slate find 3 experts who respect each other or is it’s budget too small? This podcast is a disappointment, and I feel sorry for Elizabeth and Emily.

Funny but Dumb

And update - I notice, as we watch the Russians blast and burn their way through Ukraine, killing thousands, how well their steel reinforced buildings seems to do despite columns being blasted away and whole building fires. I mention this to remind Felix of his roughly dumbest commentary in the history of Slate against such structures.

While being entertaining this podcast is without a dumbest in the Slate lineup. In today’s podcast a guest complains that it’s impossible to find Covid rapid tests for the Offical price of $14 each, rather “I’ve never seen them available for less than $28” which, as we all know, is for 2 tests. How does this get past an editor? Are interns editors? Then again, this is the podcast that has wasted everyone’s hour one week railing against steel reinforced concrete. Just dumb.
