    Project Conspiracy with Ricky Green

    Project Conspiracy with Ricky Green

    The foxes talk to Ricky Green of the Unversity of Kent about conspiracy theories and what causes people to believe in the unbelievable
    Specifically why are conspiracy theories so prevalant right now, in one of humanity's darkest hours, after a year of near-lockdown for so many? Does stress play a factor in our willingness to believe?
    We explore what factors cause people to believe, the types of belief and most importantly, Ricky guides us as to how to handle the next time a friend or family member starts sharing their views on a "conspiracy" with you.
    Ricky works alongside one of the leading teams of conspiracy theory research in the UK and shares some really interesting ideas which will cause you to see conspiracy theories and their believers in a whole new light.
    If you've wondered why 5G towers are suddenly in the cross-hairs on Twitter, or why Covid-19 vaccines could be both useless and too strong at the same time - this is the show for you.
    About our guest
    Ricky Green is a PhD student at University of Kent and is keenly interested in researching the subject of Conspiracy theories. Once one "to believe" in such theories himself, he now devotes his time to studying the factors that can influence our likelihood to believing in Conspiracy theories. Ricky lives on the South Coast in England.

    Medical Innovation and the NHS with Dr. Sam Shah

    Global Health Advisor Dr. Sam Shah is back on the Old Fox Young Fox podcast, this time focusing on medical innovation in the NHS and globally. We talk Covid-19 vaccines, what we've learned about the virus so far, how the healthcare system has responded to the increased load and what it is like to work on the frontline, in a medical clinic, day to day.
    This is a far-ranging conversation and we cover a lot of interesting ground, including the role of data in current and future healthcare, the public-private partnership and how we all have a role to play in staying healthy.
    Then we take a global view and look to China, India, New Zealand, the USA, the UK and beyond for examples of medical innovation and both the benefits and risks that such a rapidly evolving world brings with it.

    The Old Fox Young Fox podcast is an intergenerational conversation where Jeremy Woolwich and Oliver Happy look at the issues facing society. With the help of expert guests, we explore what it all means for us, our families, our businesses and the world at large.

    There is hope in hell with Jonathon Porritt

    There is hope in hell with Jonathon Porritt

    Old Fox Young Fox talks to writer, environmental activist and former Director of Friends of the Earth Jonathon Porritt about the climate emergency and why against all the odds, there is still hope.
    We trace Jonathon's journey from the activist frontline, to a career in politics, then to founding Forum for the Future, where he saw progress in educating and partnering with the business community on the need to act regarding the climate.
    And we discuss his decision to now step back from Forum for the Future and to focus on doing what he can as Chancellor at Keele University and by a more direct role in supporting the next generation of climate activist.
    We cover a lot of ground and ask a lot of the tough questions facing our global community including what is the role of civil disobedience in activism? Should we feel guilty at not having done enough or is that energy better used in making small changes to help fight climate change?

    Want a new Mercedes but can’t afford to buy one? Why buy a CD when £10 a month gives you ‘000? Setting up a new online business but will limited funds? Have it all, Subscribe Now!!
    This episode of Old Fox Young Fox looks at the subscription economy. Joined by Toby Beresford of Veneficus, we explore how a move from owning to renting is transforming the landscape for both consumers and suppliers globally.
    Netflix, Spotify, Apple iCloud, Office 365 and Amazon Web Services are all examples of subscriptions and whether we realise it or not, we are consuming more products and services via subscription every day. In fact, 2020 saw huge growth in subscription services globally due in part to Covid-19 and our insatiable desire to try before we buy, get it now and always have the latest and greatest.
    What is surprising is how far the subscription model of pay as you go has reached with school uniforms, and even jet engines moving to this model.
    But how do subscriptions actually work? What are the benefits to businesses to moving to a subscription-based model and are they better or worse for us the consumer?

    An insider's guide to Covid-19 with Dr. Sam Shah

    An insider's guide to Covid-19 with Dr. Sam Shah

    This episode of Old Fox Young Fox features Dr. Sam Shah, a Global Digital Health Advisor and former Director of NHSX. We summarise what we know about Covid-19 so far and take a long, hard look at good, the bad and the ugly of the state of healthcare in the UK and globally.
    As we enter into a second northern hemisphere winter living with Covid-19 and all the concerns that brings, what have we learned about the virus and how to prevent it? Is our public healthcare service up to the task and are our Government helping or hindering the delivery of healthcare to those who need it most?
    Dr. Shah is outspoken, incredibly knowledgable and is passionate about the need for equal access to healthcare as a basic human right. He raises serious questions about the state of our Government and the former Management Consultants now lining the upper echelons of many public service departments.
    This is an episode not to be missed and one that echoes the experiences of many countries during this pandemic and during this current experiment in Populism in many nations.
