Thomas Sowell: The Housing Boom and Bust
Pure intelligence, well presented.
Great guests, great hosts
City Journal is one of the most under-rated political journals I've ever seen. It seems most political shows are simply giving a blow-by-blow of petty politics but City Journals gets into the dirty plumbing of urban affairs and economics.
Excellent podcast, dives into the real issues and gives the appropriate backstory for historical context. I look forward to listening as soon as the notification goes off. Great work guys, keep it going!
