Informative and Enlightening
Thank you Prof. Wolff for taking the time to put this podcast out. It's so helpful to be able to get a structural critique that is easily understood of the many global scale economic changes happening around the world as well as the impact of those changes on our lives. New episodes are eally a highlight of my podcast playlist.
I absolutely love this podcast. Every week it jumps further and further up my queue. I should probably just face how much I love it and play next every time. I really enjoy the perspective I get from Dr Wolff and I have plans to write in some questions to the show if my ADHD brain will ever remember when I'm not on mobile.
Since it is a radio show converted into a podcast, it does have a long intro section that I generally skip through. Dr. Wolff tends to repeat the same announcements at the beginning that do become redundant after awhile but since they are fairly standard, skipping them is pretty easy.
