The Ricochet Podcast
Episode 116: How They Got Over

Guests: Author Harry Stein and Economist/Podcaster Russ Roberts
Apr 27, 2012

It finally happened: the Ricochet Podcast finally gets religion on Romney. Hallelujah! Also, a Titanically bad miniseries, and author and journalist Harry Stein on Trayvon Martin, left race baiting, and yes, Tiny Tim. Then economist and podcaster extraordinaire Russ Roberts (his required listening podcast is here) joins to discuss the economy, inflation on the horizon, quantitative easing, ancient Egyptian economics, and the expert’s answer to Peter’s bleg. It’s all about who you know. Finally, congrats to Ricochet member Curious John for winning the highly coveted Ricochet Podcast Member Post of the Week for his super innovative Ricochet Member Audio Meetups. CJ, your mug is on the way.
