New podcast reviews at Anne is a Man

September was a month I dedicated to picking up as many academic podcasts from the new year as I could. Apart from those, there were also other types of new podcasts I reviewed for the first time. A side-effect of this month's new reviews, I will have to start a new category list: Economics. There are some known podcasts that may fit into the category, but two new ones this month have made creating it a necessity as they would not go anywhere else:

Economics 100B (Berkeley) Economic Analysis--Macro (review , site , feed )
Now is a particularly interesting time to study macro-economics. Not only in the light of the upcoming elections, where the suggested economic policies can be measured with what you learn on the podcast. Also because of the stormy developments in the global economy and national economies.
