This week, the “Masters in Business” radio podcast features Michelle Meyer, senior U.S. economist for Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Meyer was also named to Forbes list of “30 under 30" in finance in 2011.

In our podcast, Michelle discusses the current economic cycle, what makes this recovery so different, and what has been missing. We also chatted about more personal issues, including what it was like being at Lehman Brothers in the midst of the financial crisis and the firm’s bankruptcy. We also discussed the challenges facing women in what has been a male-dominated profession, and what an economist's day is like at a big firm.

Listen to the podcast on  Apple iTunes, Bloomberg, or SoundCloud. All of our prior podcasts are now available on iTunes. Next week, we speak with Brad Katsuyama of IEX Group, who is probably best known for his role in Michael Lewis’s book "Flash Boys."
