Intellectually stimulating and wide-ranging
I love this podcast. Tyler Cowen writes a great economics blog (Marginal Revolution), and here he takes his eclectic interests and polymath mind and interviews some of the most accomplished thinkers in the world.
It also doesn't take itself too seriously, and includes real back and forth between Tyler and the guests (like another favourite podcast of mine, EconTalk) - so it's a lot more engaging than listening a lecture.
Great varied guests
Tyler has a real variety of guests and the interviews have real depth and insight
