On today’s show: Yale University’s Vikram Mansharamani explains how he thinks we can spot the next economic bubble—and even know when it’ll burst. Then, Andre Dubus III talks about growing up the son of a famous but absent father, and about his memoir, Townie. Also, David Bezmozgis tells about his debut novel, The Free World, which examines the lives of Soviet Jews who have escaped to Rome in 1978. Plus, Brian Christian explores what speaking with a computer program can tell us about human nature.
