Every once in a while, (and sometimes each day) I listen to a great podcast, enjoy an article, or see a good video that I want to share with you.

With many podcasts sinking into mediocrity, this one does just the opposite. Economist Steven Levitt, in People I (Mostly Admire, has done a sequence of interviews that I’ve enjoyed listening to and pondering. I particularly enjoyed his talk with Brown economist Emily Oster because of her past focus on motherhood and current study of schools and the pandemic. However, he usually departs from economics. Recently, he talked with Pixar’s chief creative officer and a magician.

An Anthony Horowitz mystery is always a treat. Having long ago read The Magpie Murders and his Daniel Hawthorne books, and watched Foyle’s War, I am now enjoying Moonflower Murders.

I discovered the mind boggling amount of land, labor, and capital in this voluminous description of what it takes to make a Covid-19 vaccine. Unless you really like all of the detail, do skim the document to see what scientists have accomplished. Starting with producing mRNA and ending with our own spike proteins, the supply chain is awesome.

My favorite podcast this week, The Economics Detective took me on a fascinating tour of “The Hidden Rules of Ownership.” Whether looking at the position of an airline seat, the items in our supermarket cart, or the information we share online, we are unknowingly deciding what we own.
