I have enjoyed many of these podcasts a great deal, at least the ones that have to do with the topics as to which Mr. Carroll has expertise.

He also does it in interviews, but at least the guest is speaking for awhile. I assume that he is picking this up from his students. Perhaps he should listen to articulate people (like his recent guest Niall Ferguson) to appreciate the merits of avoiding this newspeak.Read full review »
