Customer Reviews


I imagine I'm not the typical listener, as typically, political based discussions leave me either jaded or sleeping. ;) This program is FABULOUS. Matt Cadwallader does an amazing job at keeping the speakers on task and they have an amazing array of guests. It has expanded my world view, kept me engaged and makes me look forward to the next podcast. Thanks for all you do!

Excellent show, careful analysis of complex policy issues

I was so impressed by this show. The presenters are extremely articulate and precise in their presentation of the issues and policy recommendations. This is a show for people who want to inform themselves about important policy issues and appreciate objective, reason-driven and empirically sound analysis.

Great guests, length, and variety

Episodes are just the right length to address each subject in some detail without going on too long, and the show hits on a good variety of policy and politics-related topics, some of which I wouldn’t have sought out on my own but ended up finding very interesting.

As you’d expect from a Harvard podcast, the guests are top-notch and their analysis is presented in a very accessible way.
