People I Mostly Admire Podcast With Greg Norman and Mark Broadie
I’m a fan of the Freakonomics series of books in which economist Steven Levitt and journalist Stephen Dubner popularized economic concepts by applying them to real-world situations, often overturning what you thought you knew about the subjects.
The original book spawned a sequel, a blog, podcasts, video and spin-offs, such as the “People I Mostly Admire” podcast from Levitt.
Levitt is a golf addict who at one point tried to get his game to the point where he could play on the Champions Tour. In Episode 23, Levitt talks with the Great White Shark about talent and practice, and with Mark Broadie about his development of the “shots gained” statistics.
It’s worth a listen. The podcast is at the link.
