For some time now, we (Austin and Aaron) have been tossing the idea around of doing a podcast. There are lots of times we’d like to to more in depth than a blog post allows, or times when we’d like to debate an issue in a way that doesn’t conform well to blogging. So here it is.
We’re still working out the kinks, so expect that the first few episodes will be a bit buggy. We’re also trying to figure out the best way to not step on each others’ toes. We are more than happy to hear feedback, so leave us plenty. When taping, we hadn’t yet decided on a name for it. But afterwards, we thought “Rational Arguments”, the name of Aaron’s old blog, might be a good choice.
This first podcast is on all-payer rate setting. We’ve been getting lots of questions about it, and we try and explain what it is, why it might work, and why it might not.
The feed for the podcasts alone is here. Other feeds remain unchanged.
