As mentioned in a previous post, Stephen Dubner is an award winning author, as well as the host of the podcast Freakonomics. Angela Duckworth is a founder of the Character Lab, as well as a professor at the University of Pennsylvania Wharton.
The podcast was just released recently, so there are only 9 episodes or so so far. Each episode follows a similar theme, with Duckworth and Dubner taking turns asking each other questions and then discussing them. Some of the questions they ask are extremely to hear them discuss, especially since they have done a significant amount of research on them.
For example, some questions that have been asked include “How Much of Our Own Life do We Control?”, “What Does it Mean to Be a Hard Worker?”, etc. You should definitely check out their website to see if there are any episodes you may be interested in.
Each episode is about 30-35 minutes or so, so they are really easily accessible and finish-able. If you are looking for a new podcast to listen to, I would recommend checking out No Stupid Questions (especially if you are a fan of either Dubner, Duckworth, or Freakonomics)!
