I have now started podcasting at the Library of Economics and Liberty. The podcast is called EconTalk. The first one is with Don Cox of Boston College, discussing the economics of parenting, based on his essay on the same topic.

You can find the podcast here.  If you’re interested in subscribing, please visit iTunes, search on EconTalk and subscribe there—that will help EconTalk’s hit count and ranking.

Any feedback is much appreciated.

Peter (and others),

I have been a fan since hearing you on Radio Econimics. Glad to see you now have your own show.

I loved the info on parenting from an economist's point of view.

Please pass along my good wishes to Don Cox.

Please consider uploading your MP3 to The Public Radio Exchange ( If there was an audience in need of good economic info, it is the public radio audience, and you can even make some money from it.

Great show! As a parent, I identified with the idea of not offering a choice you can't live with. But choices are still important as they grow up. My favorite example is asking them, "Would you like to wear a jacket or a sweater to go to the museum?", instead of "Would you like to go to the museum?"

It's still a choice, just a bounded one.
