Russ Roberts | The Curious Worldview Podcast #150

Russ Roberts ladies and gentlemen.

One of the true OG’s of podcasting and in fact so OG, that Russ is one of the mediums earliest adopters, Russ has been at this racket for nearly 20 years now since he debuted EconTalk in 2006. 

And although economics is literally in the title, the show expands well beyond the narrow domain of theoretical economics – it is much broader and has transformed over the years into one of the most authentic reflections of a hosts shifting curiosities.

And with guests the likes of Milton Friedman, Thomas Pikety, Christopher Hitchens, Michael Lewis and even the great and elusive Nassim Taleb, you can see why EconTalk is one of the most appraised shows out there.

It was a very special moment to have recorded this with Russ, i’ve been listening to his show ever since I got into podcasting and at this point have consumed 100’s of hours of econtalk. 

In this brief podcast with russ, you can expect to hear some of the following…

  • Christopher hitchens and what russ makes of good talkers. 
  • Nassim Taleb, whether he and russ ever got to speaking religion plus whether russ has come to a pithy conclusion of what he has learned from Taleb
  • There is talk of serendipity and of course… then much more as well
