Customer Reviews


His hyper-informed interviewing style shakes the interviewees out of rehearsed book-tour responses etc.

Interesting but inconsistent

Tyler hosts some interesting guests, and some less interesting ones. The conversations also vary in quality pretty significantly. I guess, as Tyler says, ‘these are the conversations I want to have, not the conversations you want to have’. I’d say Tyler’s greatest strength as a host is his wide ranging interests, while his greatest weakness is his sometimes overly high decidedness on certain issues. You can kind of hear his brain say “nope, I’ve already decided the answer to this topic”.
Worth a try if you’re interested in economics though - that tends to be where he’s strongest.
