This week Uncommon Knowledge brings us a blast from the past. A golden oldie. Host Peter Robinson rides in on a motorcycle to kick off the installment. Over at Ricochet, Peter commented when this episode ran last year:
He may have been gone for [five] years now, but Milton Friedman, the Hoover Institution website display indicates, remains one of the most popular interview subjects ever to appear on Uncommon Knowledge.
Oh, if only–if only. I understood that Milton was a great man, but when I knew him at Hoover–his office was just two doors down the hall from mine–I failed to grasp just how singular he was. No one else is even a little bit like him. I should have insisted on sitting right down with Milton and getting his entire life story on tape.
Still, we have this.
Recorded on February 10, 1999, the installment brings us, as Peter suggests, the one and only. Through our arrangement with the Hoover Institution, we are pleased to present it in its entirety.
