  1. Tyler Cowen - Talent, Collapse, & Sex

    It was my great pleasure to speak once again to Tyler Cowen. His most recent book is called Talent, How to Find Energizers, Creatives, and Winners Across the World.

    We discuss how sex is more pessimistic than he is, why he expects society to collapse permanently, why humility, suits, intelligence, & stimulants are overrated, how he identifies talent, deceit, & ambition, & much much more!

  5. Ep. 4: John Roderick Part 2 (The Long Winters)

    What can I say? John Roderick is like my brother, driving me crazy much of the time but I love him a lot. Like anyone close to John I've spent countless hours having discussions with him, like this one, late in to the night. Usually with some iHop pancakes and strawberry milkshakes….. We've been in two bands together. One as bandmates (Harvey Danger) and one with him as the leader (The Long Winters). I can tell you with confidence that I preferred to play with him as a peer, though. John, as he states himself, has a lot of "ideas". You can listen yourself to some of them in my upcoming Couch Riffs Podcast. Our conversation was a whopping 93 minutes long. Sheesh.  It has been something like 12 or 13 years since the last record was recorded by The Long Winters. I tracked some guitar (and bass that was unceremoniously recorded over after I quit mid-session) on that record and I think it is a really sweet collection of tunes. I would love so much for John to find the inspiration to commit himself to making the simplest and best record The Long Winters has ever created. Hell, maybe it is a solo record and not The Long Winters? What do I know? What I do know is that John, like tons and tons of musicians and other creatives, is full of self…

  7. talk-about-it (1)

    Singer, songwriter, musician, podcaster and politician John Roderick is back in the studio with podcast Editor Ron Granieri for part two of their conversation. The discussion started in part one focusing on John's experiences during the National Security Seminar at the U.S. Army War College. But talk eventually moved to John and Ron's thoughts about podcasting. The host of two very well subscribed shows, John points to the power of conversation in our lives. Often the dialogue that leads to open minded examination of new ideas, podcasts can be the mode of communication that reaches the masses, tests ideas, promulgates concepts or sometimes just entertains and passes the time. For some it can be their legacy, for others their pulpit and for many their therapy, regardless of their purpose, the reports of podcasting's death are greatly exaggerated.

  8. Tyler Cowen on Talent

    How do you hone your craft on an everyday basis? It could be writing, meeting with experts, even listening to podcasts, just so long, argues economist and blogger Tyler Cowen, as it makes you better at what you already do. Perhaps more than anything else, he believes, it's practice that divides middle managers from founders, and mere good hires from the creative obsessives who end up transforming the world. Join Cowen and EconTalk host Russ Roberts for a conversation about Talent, Cowen's new book on how (and how not) to identify the talented. Hear Cowen explain why, for high-level positions, unstructured interviews are important, why stamina is usually preferable to grit, and why credentials are largely a relic of the past.
