It’s been a really long time since I’ve done a podcast, and I appreciate all the kind words of encouragement (and demands) that I’ve gotten. Here, finally, is the new show! (Yay.)

Didactic SynCast #93: The Formula

It’s been months, but this show is worth the wait. Over two hours of didactic goodness! We’re covering everything from Iraq to Edward Snowden to people pretending to be US Department of Energy spokesmen. Plus — as always — we give you the latest on fracking and high-frequency trading, with a visit from everyone’s favorite cigar-sucking businessman.

Enjoy!

Didactic SynCast #88: Shut Up, Burnout Hippie Dork!

I got dismissed from the jury, so I’m one happy man! (Like 12 Angry Men, only I’m just one man and this free time makes me happy.) This week we’ve got lots of culture and ruminations, but still plenty of news too. Enjoy!
