I didn’t like to be at university. I have serious problems with reading and thinking about theoretical things. I don’t really get into intellectual discourse.
But from time to time a good dose of these things are really good for me.
My approach is to listen to an episode of the podcast: Conversations with Tyler: https://lnkd.in/dMh4UHZp
Tyler has a very distinct way to do interviews (he just ask the stuff that he is interested in). Which leads to interesting reactions with the guest. And the guest are covering a huge variety of academia.
Highly recommend the current episode with David Cutler and Edward Glaeser about Health & Wealth of Cities:
And I can also recommend the older book by Edwar Glaeser: https://lnkd.in/dvep5VS9
