Podcasts Coolidge would approve of

Calvin Coolidge was pretty media-savvy for his time, using radio (the most pervasive mass medium of the era) more extensively than any president before him, and appearing on film. I have no idea what he’d make of the vast new possibilities, but I have a hunch if he were an active politician today, he’d certainly be using Twitter feeds and have a Facebook page, at the very minimum.

He’d also be using technology for information, and I feel he’d find the excellent podcasts by Russ Roberts a great source of information. Amity Shlaes has, for instance, been a guest, and writers and thinkers of various kinds share their wisdom.

So, if anyone out there is actually reading my occasional musings here, I hope you’ll check out the excellent podcasts that are part of the Library of Economics and Liberty.
