The guests are generally impressive people--accomplished and widely cultured. Cowan is no slouch himself. The tempo is brisk because the guests generally know how to answer clearly and succinctly and from actual experience (life or reading) and the host is not interested in parading his own...Read full review »

Discovered Tyler Cowen through Camille Paglia’s interview, rated and reviewed 5-stars because of the conversation with Shadi Bartsch.

A misnamed podcast. The host fires questions at his guests with no follow up. That written, love the format, the guests, and the topics. If you are a new subscriber start with the Dana Gioia interview/interrogation. He holds his own quite well while I imagine many of the other guests need a...Read full review »

Tyler Cowen is the most impressive polymaths I’ve ever come across
Martin Ågerup via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 04/15/21
This is such a great podcast that I look forward to every 2 weeks. Tyler is the best interviewer- better than Dan Patrick (the one formerly of ESPN), and the guests always say so. I particularly enjoyed this one with Mr. Gioia, but, since Mr. Gioia is from my neck of the woods, I will admit I...Read full review »

Great show. I wish he would add podcasting 2.0 tags to his RSS feed so we finically support his solid interviews.
Jhwahaha via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/10/21
Best podcast ever because he’s an outstanding interviewer who invites outstanding guests, he prepares excellent questions, reads their works and many related works, he listens well, and he extends his platform to his guests in a manner that encourages them to do their best. Tyler is A+

The Internet has developed a reputation for producing disinformation. This is the antidote. Intelligent questions from an interviewer who has done his homework and guests who have opinions that are worth listening to. Its like vitamins for the brain. Well done.

Tyler is so maddeningly well read and knowledgeable. He brings his A-game to each interview. The guests come from an extremely wide array of fields and disciplines. The shows run without any sort of advertisements or interruptions. Pound for pound, one of the most thoughtful, educational podcasts...Read full review »

Just talks about stuff that I learned in high school without really saying anything impactful. Not for me, but if you like infotainment, you probably won’t notice.

Tyler Cowen is a professor of economics who interviews very interesting people and asks great questions. It is the best podcast in the world.

Jeff Homes , producer of CWT, bravo on the interview of Tyler. I enjoyed the behind the scenes banter. Thank you both for all that you contribute to the bigger audience that you reach, without monetized intentions. Noble to lead by example.
Artdujour.org via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/21
I listened to Tyler's interview of John Brennan in it's entirety. Tyler never challenged Brennan on his perjury during a Senate committee hearing and his lying to the American people regarding evidence of Trump collusion with Russia. The entire interview was inane softball questions. I...Read full review »

Tyler is an amazing and unique intellect and interviewer. Very fast paced - have listened to some episodes multiple times to extract all the value. An underrated benefit of this podcast is that I’ve learned better questioning and conversational skills as a result.
p.tiddy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/25/20
Provocative and charming. Tyler Cohen is one smart cookie. Keep a google tab open while listening. I assure you, he will mention at least one topic each episode, about which you know nothing.
Jsinnsnnaois via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/07/20
I had never really come across Tyler before but stumbled across the podcast. What a find! These are not your big standard conversations but wide ranging, intelligent and entertaining. Love the underrated/ overrated piece!
Leemjeem via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/07/20
Even if I think the topic is something that will not interest me, Tyler brings genuine curiosity and his own depth of knowledge to the interview and makes the conversation well worth my time. I always learn something new. Thank you, Tyler!
TSKny via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/07/20
Tyler is a great host.
pa123 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 09/11/20
It's a good podcast with a lot of interesting guests, but they're not exactly "conversations". The host usually just asks a series of questions to the guests and rarely responds to their answers with anything more than "Why?" or "How so?" It often sounds like...Read full review »
FireShield95 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/09/20
I find Tyler’s podcast quite interesting as he brings a variety of experts in their respective fields regardless of political ideology. This is regardless of the fact that I don’t agree with many of his printed editorials.
peterchresan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/20
Not just an Econ podcast! Economist Tyler Cowen interviews guest from a wide range of fields. They’re amazing guests, and usually at the top of their fields. One of the better interviewers I’ve listened to, Cowen asks interesting questions that you won’t hear from other podcast or talk show...Read full review »
Saxab00m via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/02/20
Tyler puts an enormous amount of preparation into the podcast. An important part of that preparation is his analysis and synthesis of the interviewee, which often takes the form of a penetrating counter-argument. You can almost see the oxygen leaving the room when that happens. The choice of...Read full review »

Since I discovered this podcast, I listen as soon as it is published. Tyler is so well prepared, he has intelligent guests and he gets into the deep end right off the bat and it never drops till the end. I am learning so much. Keep up the good work Tyler and team.
brij_sh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/29/20
Tyler interviews a wide range of interesting guests with his charming, pointed and left field question style. He researches his guests in great depth, humbly applies his deep and wide ranging knowledge and tackles subjects the guests are rarely asked by other podcast hosts. I get excited and...Read full review »
Hans Obitz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/09/20
Interesting topics in every episode coupled with insightful, thoughtful questions driven by genuine curiosity to engage in ideas and understand how the guest has arrived at their assumptions and conclusions - coupled with nuggets of personal insights. I come away from each episode enriched by...Read full review »

There are very few people who have interesting minds and Tyler is one of them! I’ve had my mind expanded by listening to the podcast.
T.Themba via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 08/02/20
Genial, probing interviews of very smart interesting people.
dwchandl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/20
Pretty much the most efficient communicator of our time. Tyler just asks questions, listens and brings zero ego to the conversation.
neike310 via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 07/06/20
This episode made me cry a bit. Knausgaard is two weeks older than me and I ripped through the My Struggle volumes whenever I could get my hands on each new translation. So many notes of resonance even thought I grew up in his antipode. Every time I hear Knausgaard discuss literature and art I am...Read full review »
Herronski via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/05/20
As I am a curious person and do not know much about economy, this is a perfect podcast for me. Better even, Tyler helps me learn so much more. As I am catching up with all episodes, I may give this series another * :-)
@K_Speckmann via Apple Podcasts · Italy · 07/05/20
The host is very well read and articulate and asks some really fascinating questions of his guests. It’s a nice respite from the depressing drumbeat of politics and (awful) current events of our world in 2020.
MutatingReplicator via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/05/20
This is the best podcast I have ever come across for people who want to understand how the world works.
ramtuf87 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/04/20
A witty departure from the broad business podcast space. Tyler cleverly extracts instinctive responses from guests with his surprising, and well researched, questions. Each interview provides many nuggets of educational knowledge. Each episode is a new mental adventure.
Slackerville3 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/30/20
Whether you’re well established as someone who can translate creative energy into the impact you want to have on the world, or just getting started as a catalyst for change - this is a must-listen podcast for you! Tyler does an incredible job leading thoughtful conversations that cover a huge...Read full review »

This used to be a good podcast but last episode clearly struck a wrong chord on George Floyd and current events in the U.S.A.
Marcelcheyenne via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 06/23/20
Conversations with Tyler gives us a change to learn from a broad range of experts on topics that are relevant no matter what industry you work or serve in. I look forward to every episode.
Keri Childers via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/22/20
Tyler’s prep work before he speaks with his guests really stand out. He digs deep into his guest’s previous and current works to ask sometimes off the wall but highly relevant questions. These questions bring out answers from the guests that they probably never have thought of. Tyler is not your...Read full review »

I first came to this podcast from an interview by Malcolm Gladwell. Since then I have listened most every-second-wednesdays. Tyler’s difficult questions and the guests usual claim that no one has ever asked them that before keep me entertained as well as interested. the extra diversions into...Read full review »

...that’s Conversations with Tyler. Interesting, important topics covered in thoughtful, thought-provoking ways.
Markcuipan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/20
What a plethora of knowledge Tyler has to follow up on such complicated issues from all aspects of life. Unreal!
jackdags via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/12/20
Hearing her experience in Japan, I thought I would aspire myself to be “silly, harmless” but competent economist.
Noriaki2013 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/05/20
One of the most insightful thoughtful discussions.
Ducks billson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/31/20
Not a big fan of libertarianism but huge fan of tyler cowen and his podcast. He defines polymath. And eclectic. And interesting. And fascinating guests of all sorts. GREAT
nealinmadrid via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/29/20
Interesting guests, interesting ideas. A true renaissance man.
Eggygal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/25/20
Such a wonderful podcast. I love the research that goes in to the questions and how he pivots from disparate topics without clear segues. And over- and underaged is really fun.
bcb321p0 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/20
Great podcast, very rich content
littlebirdurbangardens via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/23/20
Great resource to think deeply and be abundantly curious. Highly recommend following along to audio transcripts to look up topics you don’t know (bc there’s a lot of them!). Thank Tyler for the great podcast series.
basralianfam via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/22/20
that amount of knowledge (and perparation) that goes into Tyler's questions is borderline inhuman compared to today's standards of interviewing. it feels like he's carrying the batton after William F. Buckley's Crossfire but with a chill Portland coffeeshop twistRead full review »
