This week Cord interviewed Todd Myers, Director of the Center for the Environment at Washington Policy Center. He is one of the nation’s leading experts on free-market environmental policy and the author of Eco-Fads: How the Rise of Trendy Environmentalism Is Harming the Environment.

Cord & Todd talked about:

  • How to establish trust when working on a fraught issue
  • Overcoming biases
  • Working in a policy area that’s not easily quantified
  • Using smartphones to solve coordinated action problems
  • Find the right venue or audience for the issue you’re addressing
  • Making a frenemy into an ambassador
  • Challenging claims about your motivations
  • When to use consultants
  • Finding success on Facebook
  • The importance of experimentation
  • Working with unlikely allies
  • Hosting a policy nature hike
  • Holding a debate instead of a one-side forum

Todd’s book recommendation was Brian Caplan’s The Myth of the Rational Voter.
