This is a great podcast. I’m fascinated by the people who are chosen, and I always learn something each time I listen. Thanks!

There is a good show here without crazy politics. I have been a long time follower but had to stop. Crazy not open minded. Sad I can no longer recommend this show.

Thanks Steve for being a great interviewer and for being open-minded.

I can’t stand Steven Levitt. He’s just so…douchey.

Steve, you are a great interviewer. I always enjoy your show, but was surprised by your recent interview with several comments disparaging American soldiers after WWII and for describing German as having strength you haven’t seen in American women. I was really struck by these statements and was...Read full review »

Steve is such a fun interviewer! He asks great questions and has a great way of looking at issues. The Q&A section is great as well.

The conversation around Ai is fascinating on several levels - technically, personal journey, and social impacts.

When the Freakonomics podcast first debuted with Steve Levitt as the occasional host, I always looked forward to those episodes though they became fewer and fewer over time. Levitt always said he didn’t see a future for himself in podcasting but then he embraced it and PIMA is the happy result.

Anyone who actually suffers from perfectionism knows (at least subconsciously!) that Curran’s definition of perfectionism (that is, not simply an adherence to high standards, but an insecurity around one’s one “deficiency” that causes one to chase perfectionism as a feeble attempt to compensate)...Read full review »

Love the podcast, but last half dozen I felt were a bit below par. 100% service resumed though.....with a fantastic conversation with Thomas Curran and his excellent work.

Some interviews are interesting, others deserve less (or no) administration. I stopped following after Avi Loeb.

What an inspiring interview, and such a great topic! I will listen to this one at a second time.
pkkell via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/23
This is one of my top favorite podcasts ever! I am delighted by the selection of guests as well as the host’s authentic curiosity and interviewing style. I look forward to every episode and hope that you eventually return to the original weekly format — it’s hard waiting two weeks between episodes!
ZeldaGold via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 07/25/23
It is inexcusable that Levitt gives any time to a notorious patent troll like myrvold. Yuck! I actually started to listen to it and found it to be revolting. The preponderance of white guys is disconcerting. The new show from Zachary Crockett is so less than Bepu. Dubner, if you don’t change...Read full review »

All fascinating guests with consistently is gigtful and probing questions.

Great guests, incredible conversations and interesting topics. Onwards!
Jbcarsny via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/23
You know it’s a good when they take a topic you’re not particularly interested in and/or a guest you don’t particularly like, but they somehow turn it into a super interesting discussion. I don’t know how they do it. I’m really impressed how Levitt obviously has an incredible mind but approaches...Read full review »

I have been listening to this podcast since it started airing - one of the best out there in my opinion. Every episode is interesting, educational and thought provoking

I don't think I will ever be too full to enjoy more interesting and insightful and fun podcasts of People I Mostly Admire. One of the best podcasts out there.Read full review »

I learn something new from every episode! 😊
Dionne1210 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/18/23
Thank you to Steve and the Freakonomics team for putting together such an awesome podcast. Seemingly every episode I find myself coming away with some new profound idea or knowledge. It’s also made me cry more than once, which is how you know this podcast is really good! 🥹
ssbenji59 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/23
Overall this show has been good and I’ve enjoyed several episodes. Putting Norman on here though? Come on. There is nothing to (mostly) or (at all) admire about a man who called chopping off the limbs of a reporter “….we all make mistakes…”. That, along with taking loads of money from such...Read full review »

Steve Levitt’s interviews/conversations with his formidable guests have been a total delight and nourishing! After many episodes, I’d further research either the topic or his guests to learn more. Levitt, like Freakonomics host Dubner, has such a deep knowledge of the subject matter and a fun...Read full review »

Sincere analysis of big range of ideas from a big spectrum of first rate guests. Always interviewed and challenged from unapologetic but respectful scientific and atheist perspective. Same as mine. There is always straight connection with the guests and a deep love for discovery and truth.
Miquel R.B. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/23
Listen up! This is like taking a mini one time course in every topic they discuss. F&&@@“ing awesome!!!!
KEITH LESNIAK via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/23
Love the guests and learning about them
Connie RR via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/27/23
One of those podcasts you can unreservedly recommend to friends. Because Steve covers so many topics, interviewing experts in almost every area a person could be interested in, that recommending this podcast is actually fun. I like thinking about what episodes other people will enjoy. A final...Read full review »

Covers a broad range of topics, many I hadn’t thought much about until this podcast. I listen to a lot of podcasts and this one stands out in terms of the quality and diversity of guests. The host clearly does a lot of research beforehand and asks questions that are far deeper and insightful that...Read full review »

Thoughtful questions and I always learn something new

The guests to date had been almost uniformly first rate, and I loved Leavitt’s down to earth interviewing style. But scheduling a teen fiction author and TikTok star really had me scratching my head. But then following that up with a professional gambler whose best advice is to quit whenever...Read full review »

Smart, but look into his views on seniors, particularly family members. Ask him about his mother.

I’d love if they had interviews longer than an hour. They have incredible guests.

Steven, impressed you were able to book the prince of darkness. Peter, God loves you and can bring you healing and a right mind if you repent.

This is the podcast for you! I absolutely love how much this podcast makes me think, makes me question everything I know, and stretches my mind to new limits. Fantastic podcast, and always includes laughs. Steve has a great sense of humor and is a total data nerd (compliment!)
3-2 Hop via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/10/22
So worth it. Pick one at random and try it. Stephen is a fantastic interviewer. he asks questions that test his own received wisdom and that of all of us.

Every episode talks to people with unique viewpoints and gives great ideas to implement.
Freshwater Swimming Girl via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/25/22
Steve Levitt is a hugely unique interviewer - he asks questions that tend to be (beneficially) different that anyone else. He’ll also push back a bit more on a guest that gives a fluffy answer. Often in the podcast landscape, if you’ve heard a guest interviewed on one podcast, you can skip their...Read full review »

Whether a topic I am familiar with or totally ignorant Steve ensure his guest provide the listeners with educational and engaging conversation Highly recommended
Leia&Yoda via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/23/22
Fun perspectives and interesting guests. Steve Levit doesn’t think like most people and I like that. I think he doesn’t fit into one box and I like that too. It doesn’t feel like a one sided agenda but it is filter through him and his thoughts. Morgan nicely checks him from time to time. Another...Read full review »

Good Morning Steven, Jill Tarter, the inspiration for one of my favorite movies EVER! Too cool! Thank-you x 10^100. Love the podcast, always have. Thanks also to the group of professionals who make this podcast happen. Have a great 4th of July weekend! V/r, ~BEB~
