I found this podcast recently and I really liked it. The host is great at asking relevant questions.

Professor Cowen has the best interview approach. Great diversity of guests and topics and yet an undertone of classical liberalism often shines through.
HDieterD via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/23
I don’t usually read economists, so I didn’t know anything about Tyler Cowen, and from what I gather from listening to most of the episodes of this pod, I probably won’t, because he seems like a typical economist douche who rushes to simplify any situation into quantifiable terms while missing...Read full review »

Interesting people having stimulating conversations.

No one he interviews matches or exceeds Tyler’s breadth of knowledge and his knack for asking pertinent, interesting questions that get to the essence of the interviewee. He is a real polymath.

Mistakes in the judgement of character were made, “But not by me". Incredibly knowledgeable host *****, five stars. Great interviewer and communicator, *****. Yet, Poor judgment, and preparation in depth of the alleged fraudster SBF. Would be fair to expect that Tyler C. would admit...Read full review »

Fast paced, original questions, never boring. Tyler draws on knowledge from almost every field when coming up with questions. If you like a rapid format with no faff in between questions this is the best podcast out there.

I really enjoy your podcast Conversations with Tyler, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in today’s deepest thinkers in wide-ranging explorations of their work, the world, and everything in between. I just listened to the interview with William MacAskill on Effective Altruism, Moral...Read full review »
I value the unique angle via Apple Podcasts · Austria · 12/21/22
Cowan asks penetrating, informed, often amusing, questions of his extraordinarily interesting guests. The range of topics is breathtaking.
27brooks35 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/22
Tyler, the host, is incredibly knowledgeable and personable. The show’s title contains the word “conversions”, but the format is more ‘rapid fire 20 questions’ than a true conversation. The stream of questions aren’t always the most organic, but they are thoughtful and interesting.
JPHLDFR via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/09/22
Not sure I’d want to have this kind of conversation with Tyler myself, but I sure do enjoy listening to them. I admire and appreciate the variety of guests and eclecticness of the questions. Not all the topics catch my fancy, but sometimes I’m surprised by the ones that do, which to me is extra...Read full review »

Great questions, interesting topics and top-shelf guests….Happy when I see a new podcast has dropped.
Tip - Not O'Neill via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/01/22
I’ve learned so much from Tyler and his interviewees. Sometimes the topic or the pace get me but with patience and a little digging on Wikipedia I manage to get excited about most of the subjects. I’m always learning. It would be good to see a list of sources, references, book’s mentioned in each...Read full review »

I’ve started to listen to a lot of Tyler’s podcasts lately. I love the style of interviewing, bang bang bang with the questions, gets so much information out of the very wise and experienced guests. I have learnt so much.
MatthewJohnNZ via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 11/03/22
Think Tyler is one of the most interesting and thoughtful thinkers alive today. I think he is a great interviewer and asks loads of outstanding questions. However, far too many of his guests are just either ill informed or purposely wrong. They make claims that can easily be disproved and it...Read full review »

I first heard Tyler on another podcast I listen to. I immediately followed this one. He’s got a great no-BS straight shooting interview style. He’s incredibly smart and I love the content. Loved the recent foreign policy guy. Highly recommend!
csue.ben via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/07/22
I love Tyler’s interview style, and I learn so much from the amazing array of guests. This podcast is intellectually challenging, informative, and entertaining!
DaniWBM via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/22/22
Tyler is a Renaissance man for our times. A true polymath! And great guests, pithy questions, an extraordinary range and depth of knowledge. But…Ray Dalio?? Why did Tyler let this uninteresting, quasi-ignorant, totally arrogant individual onto his show? Dalio is an interesting guy for his views...Read full review »
Leonickx via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/07/22
The latest episode proposed that only Americans were best suited as the best settlers for Mars. Has Tyler totally lost his mind? Maybe it’s a joke.
Jonaldehyde via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/03/22
For me, the most interesting podcasts include unexpected & challenging questions… Tyler’s extraordinarily high level of curiosity makes for a conversation filled with complex & wide ranging questions that often result in me taking notes to dig deeper on topics & ideas long after the...Read full review »

Tyler appears to have good taste that ranges an enormous breadth, and he brings that to the podcast. He has an ability to craft questions to niche experts that are excellent, and this is often times commented by the guests.
macneilmacneil via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/28/22
Thought provoking, engaging and insightful conversations with interesting people.
MacaG74 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/20/22
One of my favourite habits in listening to podcasts is finding the best hosts with whom I often disagree. Cowen is always open minded, curious, but very focused. He does not stray off on tangents like many a polymath podcast host. He is also fair to his guests and probes their ideas impartially....Read full review »

Episode with Ed Glaeser had much more back and forth than usual. And we’ll thought out questions. learned a lot.

Love Conversations with Tyler! He is such an empathic interviewer! He gets to the core of the subjects he discusses with his guests with gentle but probing questions.
vybgior via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/21/22
For Tyler and Daniel Goss, being born with rich parents is “talent”. Hilarious. “What is their secret? The coke they drink? Their focus? Their energy?” It’s their rich parents, guys. Move on.
zeerillo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/19/22
Tyler, host of the Conversations with Tyler Podcast, highlights all human interest and more in this can’t miss podcast! The host and expert guests offer insightful advice and information that is helpful to anyone that listens!
roweereyes via Apple Podcasts · Philippines · 05/17/22
Tyler goes the extra mile to give the most thorough interviews I’ve come across. Fantastic podcast that always leaves me searching afterwards to learn more about the topics discussed.

It’s not going to make you dumber.
Augmental via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/15/22
This is one of the most intellectually stimulating podcasts. I love the range from economics to arts to philosophy. It makes me so excited to have access to such brilliant people’s ideas. Tyler the host is an astonishing polymath.
Andrew geek via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/22
Generally interesting podcast with thoughtful if limited interviewer. Especially enjoy the deep consideration he gives the arts, but there is a comical avoidance of irony and queer perspective.
Emery Rouette via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/22
Tyler is so well-regarded, he has guest that other interviewers can't. Well-researched questions, and good responsiveness to the guests' answers.Read full review »
Quicksparrow via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/02/22
These are consistently the most intelligent conversations I have encountered on any podcast. They never seem to talk down to the listener.

In an age of partisanship and narrative adherence, this show is probably the best source for honest conversation around. They do a great job varying the types of guests they have, so I’ve been introduced to many great thinkers and artists courtesy of this production. Many thanks!
Tywilkes1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/21/22
Excellent, thoughtful interviews. Thank you and your team for doing this!
Ernani J via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/20/22
There’s a consistent roster of fascinating guests, and Tyler does an excellent job of probing without being confrontational. The conversations tend to be more broad than deep given Tyler’s propensity to ask many questions (cf the Making Sense podcast, which is deeper and less broad); nevertheless...Read full review »

Interesting guests, terrible interviewer. Tyler begins the interviews without giving much of an introduction or background information on the person he's interviewing, so the listener doesn't have much context for what's being talked about. Additionally, as the title of my review...Read full review »

Tyler’s interviews are unique and fascinating. Especially the guests with wildly different backgrounds like Audrey Tang, Shadi Bartsch, or Juan Pablo Villarino (among many others). The podcast asks you to do some of the work to fill in background knowledge but that is what makes it so much more...Read full review »

Put simply if for some weird reason podcast went extinct and there were only to be one. This is it!
Frank Sola via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/30/21
Difficult to place on the political spectrum—in some ways Cowan seems to hold positions that are on the left, right, and center all on the same episode. That in itself is a good thing if you are tired of predictable and easily pigeon-holed thinkers. Another strength of the show: it brings in...Read full review »
