Episode 68: An “Interv” with Dale Franks

Slackernomics

Slackernomics

This is only my second “interv” on the show, but I think you’re going to really enjoy it, and learn something along the way. Dale Franks blogs at Questions and Observations, and co-hosts the libertarian-oriented podcast, “Observations”, with two of his Q&O co-bloggers.

An “interv” is my word for an interview that fits into 10 minutes or less; short, concise, and to the point. In this interv, Dale discusses the economics of the (supposed) recovery from the Great Recession, and his major issues with the economics of ObamaCare. If economics bore you, then you’re just the person this is aimed at. Dale is the author of Slackernomics: Basic Economics for People Who Think Economics is Boring, so if anyone can make economics engaging, he can.

Episode 17: An “Interv” with Bruce McQuain

In this episode is the first of (hopefully) many “intervs”. What’s an “interv”?

I’ve been mulling over the idea of doing interviews on the podcast. The main problem, of course, is that I have a self-imposed 10-minute-or-less format, and most interviews just get going in 10 minutes. So I had to set some rules for an interview that you normally wouldn’t have. And thus was born what I’m calling the “interv”; a short, to-the-point, question and answer format. You won’t hear any clever banter or what either of us ate for lunch. It’ll just be 2 or 3 substantive questions and we’re outta’ there.

The first interv is with Bruce McQuain of the “Questions and Observations” blog, and the podcast “Observations”. I ask him about Romney’s debate performance on Democratic voters, and about why it’s Univision, and not the American press, breaking new stories on the Fast & Furious operation.
