    The Jab: How many have really died?

    The Jab: How many have really died?

    A new model from The Economist indicates that Covid-19 has claimed millions more lives than official numbers suggest. Can enough vaccine supplies reach poorer countries to prevent millions more deaths?


    Data journalist Sondre Solstad reveals the untold story of the pandemic. Robert Guest reports from Mexico, one of the countries hardest hit. COG-UK’s Sharon Peacock, a top “variant hunter”, says vaccines are beating back new strains.


    Alok Jha and Natasha Loder are joined by Oliver Morton, The Economist’s briefings editor.

    Feast and famine: vaccine supply

    Feast and famine: vaccine supply

    Though over 10bn doses of covid-19 vaccine may be produced this year, much of the poor world will see little of them. The supply of vaccines is much tighter than it ought to be. Our correspondent in New Delhi offers a personal reflection on India’s spiraling epidemic. And even as British museums re-open today, their future is looking shaky. For full access to print, digital and audio editions of The Economist, subscribe here www.economist.com/intelligenceoffer

    Checks and Balance: Smart attack

    Checks and Balance: Smart attack

    A ransomware attack shut down a vital fuel pipeline on the east coast. President Biden’s plans to upgrade the hi-tech energy infrastructure may make it yet more vulnerable to hackers. Is America properly protected from cyber attack?


    Michael Tran of RBC Capital Markets assesses the damage. The Economist’s defence editor Shashank Joshi puts the attack in context. Amy Myers Jaffe, author of “Energy’s Digital Future”, says it's a wake-up call. 


    John Prideaux hosts with Charlotte Howard and Jon Fasman.

    Home front: Israel’s war within

    Home front: Israel’s war within

    As Israel's war with Hamas has intensified, mob violence between Arabs and Jews within the country has made a tricky situation even more difficult. Is the rising price of everything from airline tickets to used cars in America a transitory phenomenon or a sign of overheating? And is pineapple and ham on pizza an inspired combination—or a culinary war crime?

Magda Rijk ,

Thank you for this great podcast

I listen to the Economist radio always when I drive to work and at the same time drive my 11 year old to school. My son acts like he doesn’t listen; but sometimes all of the sudden asks me “so how one gets cancer???” (after recent Babbage episode) or “so what are these bonds???”(after market jitter few days ago). Forever grateful:)
Best Regards,
Magda, Zurich, Switzerland

Checks and Balances

Sorry on Ukraine question,truly crap reporting with a whiff of Biden cheer leading and a dollop of Post Trump Derangement Syndrome.
