Of all available internet resources in economics, podcasts often remain the most overlooked. Yet it’s a great way not only to enrich your knowledge, but also to look at an already familiar matter from a different perspective. Normally, podcasts are issued in the style of lectures, talks, interviews or just short commentaries, and cover either current economic issues or pure academic topics.
Previously we published a list of free online courses from renowned universities that have both open-access lectures and podcasts of public events (like LSE). Below you will find a list of economics podcasts, some of which were mentioned by Tim Harold in his blog last year.
The featured resources are mostly produced by think tanks, research institutes, economics bloggers or media. They represent different schools of economic thought and vary in length and style.
