Tyler Cowen continues to be one of the most interesting interviewers. Even if you’re not much for Jordan Peterson, give this episode of Conversations with Tyler a try to hear him explain how collecting Soviet-era art from eBay is a reminder that “nothing wins over art,” as the works themselves outlasted their purposeful propaganda. He also explains the mythology of the Exodus story, why Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter are modern religious texts, and how Tinder changing the way men are rejected by women is revolutionary.
Come for the deep thoughts, stay for Cowen’s insane segues. There will likely be more thoughts from this podcast in the week ahead.
