Host Rachana Shanbhogue and Henry Curr, our economics editor, investigate how the pandemic will recast the global economic order.

Well researched and presented stories

Typically well balanced art clearly presented articles. A good introduction to articles in the magazine.

Andrew Saul ,

Financial chat show

This is like a football chat show for economics and finance. The topics of the day in business are tossed around and discussed and explained really well, and it's always really entertaining. Really good job guys, if anything please make it a little longer.

Worth some time

The podcast is succinct and covers a delightfully diverse array of topics. Although there is a stronger left-wing bias than I remember used to be the case in the magazine, with endless the host endlessly talking about supposed biases and discrimination
