Well worth the time

I discovered this blog recently on advice by a friend. The guests are generally very good and engage in good conversations with the host. As a former central banker, I find this blog really a gem, both on central banking issues and on macro in general. Highly recommended!

Fascinating conversations, insightful & entertaining

David Beckworth is a brilliant, highly engaging host that never fails to deliver a conversation that is accessible, informative, and highly entertaining. While many macroeconomists view their trade as a solemn branch of applied math, David reminds us how economic thinking can elucidate the world around us. Excellent work and many thanks for the tremendous effort - you've made us better thinkers and inspired us to engage with new ideas!

The Real Deal

Not glitzy, and certainly not dumbed down, this podcast is for those like to think great thoughts about macro economics. The guests are leaders in their fields. The questions are thoughtful, relevent, and provocative. You know that David Beckworth does his homework ahead of time. Also the accoustics are usually very good, with host and guest clear and at the same volume.

My favorite econ podcast

Though David Beckworth is an expert in his own right on monetary policy and can speak knowledgeably about economics in general, he lets his guests do the talkingand never interrupts. He uses his economic insight to ask great questions that move the discussion down interesting paths. As is often said, you have to be fairly knowledgeable yourself to know which questions are the right ones.One thing he does that I deeply appreciate is that after his guest has spoken at length and in detail about a subject, he will often rephrase and consolidate what was just said in a way that is conscious of the laypeople in his audience.He gets some of the best guests of any economics podcasts around, whether they are established Nobel-winning heavyweights or up and coming young economists. It's one of the best econ podcasts around, and great for any econ nerds who want to hear deep dives into policy and theory.

A must for Econ junkies

Macro musings is reliably topical and always interesting. David Beckworth manages to feature most of the leading Economics minds while having an uncanny way of asking the exact questions that I want answered. If you can get past the blatant nominal gdp targeting propaganda it is a fantastic way to spend an hour exercising your mind.
