50 Things that Made the Modern Economy is one of my favorite podcasts!

For anyone who finds this article (slash podcast episode) interesting, I'd also recommend the episode on the Hollerith punch card, which is kinda relevant to the history of the computing field :)

Hollerith punch card episode page: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3csz2x7

The article for this episode (i.e. same format as main link): https://www.bbc.com/news/business-50578234

I also recommend the author's other podcast "Cautionary Tales". It's very well produced, and fascinating.


Ha, I made a similar comment, which puzzled me as I couldn't find it; turns out this was a dupe of https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22308482, same URL different title.
