Great podcast for anyone who cares about the economy!
Awesome first episode. Excited to see where they take this in future episodes. Good chemistry between the two hosts.
Smart concise discussion of Econ policy w/ a side helping of dad humor and great jazz and blues -- what's not to love!
Really like listening to this.
