This podcast is informative, simplifying common (although potentially difficult/incomprehensible to beginners [see below]) economic concepts in a logical and thought provoking way. I've listened to most of these podcasts, and although his approach tends to lean toward the Austrian School of economic thought (along the notions of Ludwig von Mises/economic libertarianism), his approach to the topics in question is concise, factually accurate and very interestesting.
