    This is a solid concept for a series. Even if I’m well informed on all sides in a given topic, learning more about the personal emotional resonance of the various aspects of those arguments is just as important. Persuasion is such a messy business with near infinite nuance, that I never get tired of the “how I got here” stories.

    This was worth a relisten. It’s so helpful to see how one can fixate on one true conclusion about a situation (trade deficit), but that can obscure some other true things. The analogy of the person going into too much debt was very helpful to me.
