Brian and I talk about the rise of Austrian Economics

I am hoping to get back into podcasting some time.  But this time round I want to do it using Skype. Recording a conversation down the line means that you can get into editing straight away and vastly increases the number of people you can talk to.

To that end I am phoning up friends on Skype and recording the conversations as a way to get some practice at this.  (So, be warned. Well, not really, I will tell you and nothing will be uploaded without your say so.)  It is a remarkably difficult thing to get right and up until recently I was beginning to think it was impossible - at least on a Mac.

But it isn’t and a couple of weeks ago I was recording a conversation with Brian Micklethwait.  Interesting conversation and Brian and I agree it deserves a wider audience.  So, here goes.

It started with us discussing Brian’s then talk-to-be on the rise of Austrian Economics before moving on to free states, the surprising resilience of Western democracy, greenery and Keynesianism. 

Sadly, it starts and ends rather abruptly.  Hope that doesn’t spoil things too much.

  1. Well I’m not sure about whether it deserves a wider audience.  It was merely that I saw no reason to not let you use it.

    It is the sort of thing where listeners will think: I could do that better.

  3. I tried to have another listen to this, and all I got was:

    Error 404 - Page Not Found

    What’s happening?

  5. Now it’s back working again.  Very odd.
