Economics Podcasts

Do you know of any good podcasts? Here are some economic podcast sites I’d recommend.

Radio Economics, a blog by Dr. James Reese an economics professor at the University of South Carolina. He interviews various economic bloggers. Interviews include nobel laureate Gary Becker and Richard Posner, of the Becker-Posner blog. There is also a recent one regarding “The Economics of Wal-Mart” with professor of economics Dr. Russell Roberts, made especially for you Wal-Mart haters out there.

Foundations For Economic Education, click on “Events”, and it will take you to various different podcasts. Some important ones include, “Human Betterment through Globalization” by nobel laureate Dr. Vernon Smith.

Ludwig Von Mises Study Guide, definitely the widest ranging and largest collection I have ever seen. They have almost any topic you could think of, and for those of you really new to economics, I would recommend their, Home Study Course here.
