Inspired by Maria spreading the economics podcast love, I’m recommending Russ Robert’s EconTalk. Roberts is a professor at George Mason and an unabashed Austrian but is open to the ambiguities that surround economics. One of the most interesting podcasts is on the balance between empiricism and theory. RECOMMENDED.
Speaking of economics and podcasts, I’ve been listening to The Adam Carolla Podcast, which is recommended for those that miss their smart-ass friends from high-school. It’s also interesting listening to the first few episodes where Carolla & his guests try to figure out how to (segue) monetize podcasting. It’s a reminder that successful artists (ignoring those that are just lucky/crazy) have a core of solid hustler. The downside of the show is that the mp3′s all have the same ID3 tags, which is seriously going to mess up my last.fm stats. ALSO RECOMMENDED, THOUGH NOT AS INFORMATIVE ABOUT ECONOMICS.
