When you had a voice coach, I said to myself utoh (I hope you get this). One thing among many of the things l love about you is your voice. I’ve listened to Coach about 5-6 times because you are reading it. If I’m not mistaken you only write about subjects that interest you. They must all...Read full review »

I don’t care if it’s patronizing or not but the guests on this episode are just annoying. And, a different note, society is a completely made up place. It’s a game. It’s a creation of human action. So if overconfidence has helped males reach a dominant position over thousands of years of...Read full review »

I don’t mind ads as much at the beginning or end, but in the middle of a story, they are very annoying … and very disruptive …

Micheal Lewis never disappoints. Just when I thought this podcast couldn’t get any better an episode like “The Overconfidence Game” comes out and renews my love for this show all over again. Thank you for making such high quality content!

My favorite podcast and author, bar none Michael has a way of getting to the heart of his topic in a way that is truly riveting. Not only does he grab your attention, he stirs emotions within the reader that are deep an earnestly felt. Michael has a way of motivating his audience. Well done!

Not a podcast; it’s art.
Blobbert1138 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/22
Integrity That is the word that permeates this podcast. You are not alone in thinking people CAN work with integrity. Michael Lewis finds them, interviews them, reports on them…against the narrative we have been told. Others deflect, explain, obfuscate. Not his guests. They are good people. He...Read full review »

This episode was outstanding. The ending can move one to tears. Michael Lewis is, among other things, just a great storyteller.
Mark B Carter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/24/22
Fantastic episode. This hits right where many of the most difficult issues we face as a country exist. People want to believe they control most things they encounter. They do not want to think probability or statistics is in play. Look around and you see it everywhere. Healthcare, social issues,...Read full review »

The narration and storytelling are great. The ads are too frequent and too jarring. It’s unsettling to be absorbed in the story and then suddenly switch to someone yelling advertising content. I know they need to make the money, but plenty of podcasters have incorporated ads with less frequency...Read full review »

Michael, I am crying as I am listening to episode two of season three. Oh my goodness I am so appreciative of all the experts who have helped me with unseen hands. You opened my eyes.

From one of my fave thinkers, love this series
Dan the Milkshake Man via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/16/22
I’ve never once been anything less than riveted when I read or listen to Michael Lewis. He peels back the curtain on so many interesting topics in society with such a human and nonjudgmental, and compelling voice.

So happy to hear about the new season. One of the best things in my podcasts. Thank you Michael and Malcolm. You two are amazing. Please continue what you are doing. Sincerely Mary Griffin

I’ve listened to prior seasons of Against The Rules, but this season, on expertise, its definition and its limits, is truly outstanding. The Bill James episode is a must listen for anyone who thinks about how s/he thinks. Michael, if you’re not done taping this season and you’re still open to...Read full review »

Amazing
Lance eats pie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/13/22
I’m pretty sure this is the best podcast out there right now. It’s like a book you don’t want to put down.
Tre769 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/13/22
Once again Lewis makes me pleased I’m not American. That there is an industry targeting students, teachers, first responders and service people financially and ruining their lives is astonishing. Great podcast. I’m going to enjoy the other 30 episodes. Well done, Michael and Team.
Joolz2011 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/12/22
Michael Lewis is an amazing storyteller who weaves very useful lessons into his stories. Thank You for this great podcast.

Love the podcast but the guy in the Draft King ad has a voice like a chainsaw. Yikes.
Wayner88 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/08/22
I could listen to this man read a grocery list. Great writing, story telling, topics. Keep up the good work!!
Jilly Gee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/22
I’m not sure if this is just my experience but the episodes are a nightmare to navigate. On most podcasts the latest episode is at the top and then they file in chronological order. There’s season one first, then trailers, it’s a mess and I can never work out what is the new from the old. There’s...Read full review »

I haven’t been able to figure out what is happening from season 1, 2 or season 3. Is it subscription? Do they add episodes to listen each season? I don’t think I’ve been able to find an episode to listen to in over a year. This podcast has become a joke and is not even worth trying to figure out...Read full review »

I just binged all the Liar’s Poker podcasts and it was so enjoyable. I might read Liar’s Poker next, or listen to the audiobook, or listen to the rest of these pods... I love Michael Lewis’s humour and light touch. The only possible tiny fishbone I have to pick is that the LP pods are hard to...Read full review »

I worked at Salomon at the same time the author did, the main difference was our private placement group split time btwn the trading floor and investment banking. All i can say is he captured the ethos, tone, etc., beautifully and accurately, without even having to dip too far into the slime, as...Read full review »

I really enjoy this podcast. Michael Lewis has a great voice and is a great storyteller. Discusses pertinent topics that I’ve never thought about before. Very intriguing.
Ofidkvkgfg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/22
Here, podcasting reaches peak mercenary self-indulgence. a series by Michael Lewis about the impact of Michael Lewis’s first book Liar’s Poker, which includes excerpts of the audiobook read by Michael Lewis. It’s sponsored by a sports betting website, which seems weird until, right after the book...Read full review »

Michael Lewis is God’s gift to entertainment. Love all of your work!
Jan-Johan via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 12/21/21
I loved Season 2, not Season 1 too much, and nothing about what you’re doing or not doing with Season 3. I know that you’re a busy guy with many different things going on. Good luck to you. Kassapa
MyHeartAlwaysBeatsForUsAll via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/03/21
I thought I was just going along for the ride although I strongly disagree with the politics. Then came the serious suggestion by Geraldine Brooks and the joking acquiescence by Lewis that Americans need re-education camps, as long as they are 4 - star camps. I guess we’ll have a Communist...Read full review »

I love how relatable you make things that I would ordinarily not be interested in hearing about. You mr episode Data Coach credits is the first time I’ve listed to credits and laughed out loud. Thanks for a great show!
CandiceFrankland via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 07/21/21
Move over Malcom and Tim, Michael rules! I loved Gladwell’s Revisionist History and Harford’s Cautionary Tales, but Lewis excels with his engaging storytelling. It may begin as a story about sports or the arts then Lewis shifts the narrative to a larger social or political issue that is having...Read full review »

Lewis does it again. He makes any set of characters interesting and the heroes of their own lives.
Podcaster/Podcastee via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/21
I loved the chapter that Michael read for his podcast, so much so that I rushed to buy the audiobook only to be disappointed by the robotic narration so bad that I couldn’t continue listening. Returned the audiobook to get my credit back. If I ever find time to read (rather than listen while I...Read full review »

I don’t know if this is the proper venue for this but as a fan of your books and podcasts I just wanted to pass along my deepest condolences in the hope that it can provide even a sliver of support to combat the unimaginable pain you must be going through. As a father of a 19 year old girl I...Read full review »

These topics and conversations are so, so important in this moment. People’s opinion on these very topics formed now will influence future so deeply. Injustice is unfortunately coming back and now is the crucial moment to prevent that, because it will be almost impossible to cure it if eventually...Read full review »

Michael, Please narrate your own book The Premonition. You can be inspired by Malcolm Gladwell’s books Talking to Strangers and The Bomber Mafia that include interviews, etc. by real interviewees or actors. The current narrator of The Premonition released by Audible is unacceptable and does a...Read full review »

Downloaded to my kindle after midnight! Love your books & this is no exception

Michael Lewis could bring drama and intrigue to a recital of the phone book. Read his books, listen to his podcast, enjoy and learn a lot about our crazy world. This is another great creative outlet from one of our national treasures.

Michael Lewis is brilliant and love the way he tells stories to highlight various aspects of society.
