I spend much of my spare time listening to podcasts, including EconTalk, Planet Money, and the Tim Ferriss Show among others, and I’ve often thought it’s about time I start my own podcast. Over the last month or so, I’ve taken the Podcasting Fellowship course delivered by Alex DiPalma, a prominent US podcast producer, notably of Seth Godin’s Akimbo podcast. As part of the course, you need to interview people and edit the audio. I am very grateful to my colleague Craig Lawrence, Managing Director of Lytton Advisory, for agreeing to be my first interviewee. Craig has had a lot of experience advising on infrastructure projects in Australia and overseas, including in PNG, the Solomon Islands, and in the Middle East. I’ve been fortunate to work with Craig on a few projects over the last couple of years. You can listen to our discussion on the economics of infrastructure below.
Thanks to the BBC for providing the supermarket scanner sounds which I obtained via the BBC Sound Effects Archive.
