The last week was light on news from the podcasting world, so Tadas Viskanta jumps right into his selections, with entries touching on high-frequency trading (HFT), crowdfunding's impact on real estate, and David Simon's journey from newspaper reporter to one of the most celebrated television writers and producers.

Among the podcasts in Tadas Viskanta's latest roundup, Michael Covel interviews Nobel Prize–winning economist Angus Deaton and Barry Ritholtz talks to Mohamed El-Erian about the state of the world economy.
