The Kant episode was a tour de force of compression & celerity, yet unfailing clarity as well. Thank you for rousing this slumbering dog, gentlemen.

Enjoy the economic and historic topics, not much his politics. It’s so obvious that he has pet peeves. But it gets worse when his biases lead him to pick and choose which facts to present to his readers and listeners. One example is his view on Columbia student protest. In this podcast, he...Read full review »

I am a devotee of this pod - AND. I understand and appreciate Adam’s skepticism of US global power projection, but this often drives him to unquestioningly accept revisionist counterpositions that service a worldview that he would ultimately reject. Like those of the Houthis (who have been...Read full review »

While typically a very helpful and informative podcast, Adam Tooze didn’t bring his usual rigor to the recent episode on the Red Sea. Instead, he was more interested in turning the Houthis into a sympathetic character of anti imperial resistance in service of his broader point on American or...Read full review »

Cast was supposed to be about economics. Tooze should have questioned and stopped the rant against Israel.

I really enjoy Adam Tooze!!! Cameron is ok too!!
Juluaman via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/08/23
But the advertisements and endorsements spoken by the hosts are confusing. When picking up where I left off can be hard to distinguish what is paid speech vs original speech and then it makes me question everything the host says.

Probably my favorite liberal econ or politics pod. Adam is brilliant and eloquent on a huge variety of topics, and intellectual renaissance man. Credit to FP for sponsoring such a proudly Keynesian project, though I do find the Amazon Ring ads problematic (that is a malevolent product).

Your podcasts are always enlightening, but the one on August 25, 2023 was outstanding, especially the analysis of the economic situation in Japan and Britain. You go a long ways towards making economics understandable and useful to those of us that never took an economics class. Thank you.

Awesome- keep them coming

Would definitely recommend
devdevdevf via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/16/23
The most insightful, interesting current affairs, economics and historical podcast you will find.
Thinkster72 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/25/23
Tooze is great as ever but the format could be improved. At its best the podcast allows Tooze do perform his now customary wizardry in illuminating and connecting wold historical trends and processes. At times however it can verge on the awkward as the host, very much an every day man foil...Read full review »

I listen to lots of finance / ecomics podcasts and this has become an absolute must listen show: always interesting, always topical, always delivered in an unbiased easy to grasp way. It just works! Enjoy!

I’ve never reviewed a podcast — except maybe one of my own ;) — but this is a comet through smog. Thanks to Adam and Cameron for this scintillation.
PageColeman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/11/22
Yet another reason to look forward to Fridays as that’s when this podcast comes out. Adam is brilliant and Cameron asks all the right questions. We’ll done!!
Mike Trobe via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/16/22
Recent episode on Fed Jackson Hole meeting and teacher pay reflects the best and worst of the podcast. Wonderful explanation of how the Fed meeting at Jackson Hole originated and how it became so important. Wonderful, insightful discussion that you cannot find elsewhere. Pretty poor...Read full review »

I read and thoroughly enjoyed Tooze’s “Wages of Destruction.” I was pleased to see he had a weekly podcast and it is one a highlight every week.
hermotherandfather via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/16/22
If you feel intellectually superior parroting this narrative, this is a podcast for you. If, however, you prefer independent thought, pass on it. Keynesian economics all the way through.
AldenPearson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/03/22
Tooze is that rare thinker who can see the forest and the trees
RenewedAgora via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/22/22
What a pleasure to listen to this super interesting podcast. I am so glad You are here!
04Ry via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/06/22
This is an intriguing podcast. In some ways it is utterly conventional and deeply America-centric in its framing of issues. Yet at the same time it can be deeply historicist, nuanced in the best inter-disciplinary intellectual tradition and at times deeply, marvellously comparative! This...Read full review »
Mitch Bernard via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/26/22
Incredible analysis of why & how the economical systems and behaviors have brought us to this point and where we are heading next to survive! Please keep up the great topics and coverage! For example, economically speaking, which data measured can determine that the destruction and demise...Read full review »

Adam Tooze provides valuable insight as ever. The podcast is let down by having a co-host/foil to Tooze who is of middling intelligence. Replace Cam with someone insightful or who speaks less.
DCP - LDN via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/08/22
There are many great things about this show, but what I enjoy the most is that it brings nuance to frequently over simplified topics. Their podcasts on sanctions have especially given me a lot of food for thought.
Nickname1792804 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/22
I thoroughly enjoyed Adam’s diatribe about the incoherence of the Brexit project and the fundamental non-seriousness of those who advanced it. I first encountered him on the “Talking Politics” podcast (which is also excellent), and found him so insightful that I was delighted to hear that he had...Read full review »
LEKoet via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/29/22
The range of topics covered, the rapport between the hosts, and Adam’s clear explanations make this podcast quite enjoyable!! It strikes a great balance between serious economics discussion and light hearted podcast discussion.

Adam Tooze is really smart
stefanloawson via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/19/22
winning pair, always relevant, they break down complex contemporary issues for a wide-ranging listenership. Thank you!
rebd8 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/22
It’s not easy to find a podcast that is clear & concise about complex economic news. Adam seems to have an answer for everything; I’m glad Cameron is there to bring it all forward. Keep up the good work guys!
Brownie240 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/04/21
Abadi is a deft interviewer, and Tooze, as always, is superlative.
Finance Kid 117 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/15/21
Adam as an expert on everything works only some of the time - it would make more interesting to make it twos and threes every now and then. Also, please take some voice lessons - the length of a sentence should match one’s lung capacity - otherwise the delivery weakens with the declining oxygen...Read full review »
wiatrwpolu via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/15/21
I’m always amazed by Adam Tooze’s wide and deep factual knowledge on all kinds of contemporary economic topics. Even more impressive given that he is primarily a professor of economic history. I personally don’t (yet ;) much agree with many of the Keynesian conclusions, but fully trust him on the...Read full review »
turicum via Apple Podcasts · Austria · 11/13/21
Tooze is rather excellent. At the same time, the other nice gentleman sounds a bit too much like the world revolves around the US...which is a bit surprising for a Foreign Policy podcast. Still, thumbs up for the show.
corky#2 via Apple Podcasts · Italy · 10/19/21
Only 4 episodes in but I am enthralled. Tooze’s depth and breadth of the subject will have you paying attention to every word. Great for people beginning to learn about Econ.
helenjohn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/13/21
Everything Adam writes or tells is prescient and intelligent. This podcast is a way for us, young economist, to follow his thoughts closely and look at the world in a more nuanced way. The questions from Cameron are on the point and the podcast’s is fun to listen to.
Medaziz2 via Apple Podcasts · France · 10/11/21
Tooze’s appearance on any podcast is always insightful and entertaining so it’s great to see Foreign Policy provide a dedicated outlet for him. No one does more to demystify the complexities of economics and finance and their interaction with politics and history. Abadi also deserves credit as an...Read full review »

Not just Adam chatting (which would be good on its own) but it’s got a fun host and nicely (though not overly) edited and produced.
Kalebbn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/08/21
Adam Tooze is truly one of the best thinkers around. Insightful and informative. A great additional to my weekly podcast listening!
Boydy151 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/08/21
Fantastic educational podcast. I heard Adam on Ezra Klein’s podcast and this is of a similar cut of Ezra’s. Great deep dive of the US and World’s financial dynamics. It will get you real smart, real quick if you listen carefully enough IMO. Cameron is a perfect fit with Adam and introduces the...Read full review »

Toose is brilliant and it’s refreshing to hear his progressive Keynesian leaning economic ideas.
AnimaJuno via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/03/21
Perfect length. And just generally a great format to get Adam‘s perspective on politics and economics on a regular basis!
Paauull123 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 10/01/21
It’s the truest sign of intelligence when you can explain complex concepts to anyone — and that’s what Tooze does!
Zazzy podcasts via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/21
Although there have only been two episodes so far, the topics covered have been so interesting! I loved the one about bullet trains. I’ll definitely be listening to all of the future episodes.
JTown96 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/26/21
This is a great listen. Perfect for anyone who wants a better understanding of international macroeconomic and political issues. Tooze is a brilliant speaker - lucid, expansive and wide ranging, yet always clear and informative. Great for students or any interested lay-person. Highly recommended.
