A Rant on Rage

by Russ Roberts on June 19, 2006

in Health, Podcast

In this new podcast, I look at the science and economics of Intermittent Expressive Disorder, expanding on my recent post on the topic.

This is a bit of an experiment. Unlike my previous podcasts, I’m not interviewing anyone. It’s just me talking on the topic for 20 minutes or so. It would be really helpful to get any kind of feedback—is it interesting or boring, clear or muddy, too long, too short or just right? Should I never do one of these again or should I do one like this every once in a while?

Russ, I enjoyed it, but I have "Slow Activity Enjoyment Disorder", which combined with the large amounts of free time I have for listening to economics lectures (I'm a grad student in your department) may make me an inappropriate test subject.

Mr. Roberts,
I am a Registered Nurse and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida. I have been in the mental health field for over 10 years. It has only been within the past year that I really began questioning the systems and processes that make my field such a juggernaut in mainstream America (if that makes any sense). I really appreciate an economist's perspective on a variety of issues; I think that economists in general ask the most genuine questions about a subject. You guys really look beyond what is salient.
I like your rant on rage piece. Knowing what your opinion is on an issue is just as important as the opinion of someone you interview.
