Unreliable economic analysis

Economic analysis is often inaccurate and tends to oversimplify. Also, spoiled a major plot point in Game of Thrones in a worthless episode ranting about its economy.

Disingenuous

The Nordic gender equality episode searches for ‘sexist’ trends to explain why there are so few female CEOs when the research has been explaining to for over thirty years - the more egalitarian a society is, the more the genders’ interests diverge and the fewer women choose to go into high-powered positions. I don’t know if NPR is deliberately concealing this data or not, but I’m certainly suspicious.

Got tired of the politics

How many gender wage gap topics do we really need?

The show was interesting at first, but now it’s just thinly veiled fluff pieces on left of center policies.
