Realistic and insightful

fascinating podcast finding common threads in various stories, and using that to deduce how the world works. Thoughtful and even hopeful. Really helps me feel like I have a better grip on the world.

Don’t be cautious about listening to Cautionary Tales

Tim Harford is an economist with a real gift, the ability to tell well a tale that could be dull. I LOVE this podcast. It is not to be missed!

Fantastic!

This is one of my most favorite of podcasts. I’m a little sad at the end of each episode, and definitely at the end of the season. I could listen to Tim all day.

Wow.

I won’t say that this is my favorite podcast because there are so many great ones out there, but this one really is special. Generally I shy away from one-host podcasts because they’re rarely professional but Cautionary Tales is absolutely, uniformly excellent. The host is authoritative and calm, his stories are thrilling and teach so much while they entertain. He really makes you think, not just about the background story, not just about the present-day issue that the background story illuminates, but also about how you’re conducting your own life, and what lessons you can learn from history. I hope this podcast goes on and on.

Gaps

As most have said here, wonderful, but please tighten up some of the gaps. I keep thinking the episode is broken, waggle the earphones, start digging in my pocket and then suddenly it starts again, was just an unnaturally long gap in the editing. Doesn't seem to happen in other Pushkin podcasts

What’s with the silly accents?

I listened to the blitzkrieg episode... An interesting enough topic, but the actors with silly accents made it intolerable to listen to.

So good!

When I settle down to listen to one of these I feel like I’m settling down to a super interesting bedtime story. Excellent storytelling with the bonus that it’s all true!

Sobering and relevant

As a US citizen who works in cancer care, latest episode on “valuing human life” was especially cogent, disturbing and absolutely a needed opening of further policy discussion...which we are avoiding, to our great self-detriment. And thus we are woefully unprepared for difficult decision making on multiple levels, that will come.
