Excellent podcast meeting a major need.
I have been listening to this podcast for over a year. Eric Olander deserves kudos for running this show as professionally as he does, and with finely tuned, intelligent delivery. He continually presses the points, demands clarity of information from his sources and presses his interviewees on specifics and inconsistencies, as a good journalist should.
I am a global public health researcher and policy person who has lived and worked in sub-Saharan Africa since 2000. The material covered here rings true and is pertinent to all aspects of global health, economics and development (after all, they are all related). The quality of the information covered is such that an intellectual will find it informative and fulfilling.
These guys took a gamble on a podcast with a potentially small market, but their vision is paying off. I am very happy to see good work do well.
