Podcast #150 is up!

The Promise and Peril of Credit: What a Forgotten Legend about Jews and Finance Tells Us about the Making of European Commercial Society - Francesca Trivellato

It boggles my mind to write this, but somehow I've managed to produce 150 podcasts! The latest one is now up on the New Books Network website; in it, I interview Francesca Trivellato about her study of the origin and evolution of the myth that Jews developed the credit mechanism of the bills of exchange. Enjoy!
