What is The Jolly Swagman Podcast about? I don’t have a clear answer to this question. But recurring themes include economics, politics, entrepreneurship, probability theory, rationality, epistemology, evolutionary biology, moral philosophy, and how to build a future that is spectacularly good for generations still to come (there’s also one episode about gastrophysics, though it’s not my standard fare).
The podcast is my passion project, not my day job. I try to do wide and deep research before every conversation, so that I’m creating counterfactual value and not just repeating things that already exist on the internet. If I'm guided by my own interests, I'm thrilled you can listen in.
