Here's a short thread shouting out a publication, three podcasts, and three Twitter feeds -- all biz & econ focused -- that I got much more into this year and which I think are in certain ways under-heralded. (I'm excluding NPR podcasts but obvs you should subscribe to them all.)
1 Start with Barron's. It's long had a reputation as a stock-picking publication, but it's much more than that. And under @katherineabell it's hired a bunch of great writers that have melded well with its stalwarts to make something really compelling.
1b The writers I know are @mdc / @M_C_Klein / @alexandrascaggs / @BenDWalsh, and they've helped make Barrons into a weekly must-read for me. Just one example: Matt Klein's perspective-shifting piece on Chinese inequality from earlier this year: bit.ly/2EXGxNr
2 I was already a fan last year, but Odd Lots cohosted by @tracyalloway and @TheStalwart came into its own this year and is a *great* interview-format show for understanding financial markets, especially given the variety of topics it covers: bloom.bg/2LF6QbA
2b Like the best podcasts, Odd Lots reflects the idiosyncratic interests of its two hosts, ranging from the seriously wonky (the Eurodollar market) to the geopolitical (Aramco IPO fail-splainer & Saudi palace intrigue) to a second-chance-for-criminal interview (Nick Lesson)
3 My old Alphachat comrade @AimeePKeane founded her own weekly show, "Behind the Money". Featuring a cast of Financial Times reporters, BTM uses a smooth, logically unfolding narrative structure (sorta similar to The Daily) to explain otherwise-arcane biz and finance stories
3b My two favorite episodes of BTM ran consecutively in September: a crystal-clear explainer on Purdue Pharma with @bydavidcrow, and Aimee's crisis anniversary episode: on.ft.com/2s2Jyn8 & on.ft.com/2LJvK9W
4 *The* indispensable podcast on trade-related issues -- and this year emerged a lot of these issues -- was Trade Talks, hosted by @SoumayaKeynes and @ChadBown: piie.com/trade-talks The last episode with Krugman is a great place to start (bit.ly/2QgdEwY)
4b Though the episodes that I learned the most from were the more esoteric. Try this explainer of the New Nafta (fine, USMCA) -- bit.ly/2Pp5EKr -- and this one on the differing effects of steel quotas versus steel tariffs -- bit.ly/2QZ1uxQ
5 And for links to econ research I wouldn't have seen and labor market commentary, I really appreciated the Twitter feeds of @jenniferdoleac for the former; and of the Indeed Hiring Lab crew (@marthagimbel / @JedKolko / @nick_bunker) and @ernietedeschi for the latter [END THREAD]
