One of the hallmarks of a great podcast is that the most interesting episodes are those where I disagree with the guest. Saagar and Marshall are excellent at finding the overlap between what their guests know well and what’s actually important, and ask excellent questions in those areas. This show also completely flipped my perception of the American economy on issues like free trade and the minimum wage, and incidentally made it almost impossible for me to listen to a fiscal conservative or a neo lib democrat without yelling at the radio.
Guest suggestion: Dean Baker of CEPR. I like his blog and I think he would have a lot to say about free trade and manufacturing. His open disdain for the innumerate press would make a great match with the show.
