    Thames Water: the business model built on sh*t

    Thames Water: the business model built on sh*t

    The state of our rivers is set to be one of the discussion points of the election and time’s ticking on Thames Water’s request for a 56 per cent increase in customers’ bills. As Ofwat mulls that one, it might ask how a company which leaks raw sewage into our rivers managed to rack up unsustainable levels of debt while also paying out dividends to shareholders. 
    Warning: this podcast includes exclusive interviews from those brave enough to take a dip in The Thames.

    Hague talks Taiwan and the fight for the world’s most critical technology

    Hague talks Taiwan and the fight for the world’s most critical technology

    Our modern world is built on chips; they control everything from our cars to the stock market, dishwashers to missile systems, computers to - potentially soon - augmented humans. But with China and America battling for control over production - and about ninety percent of advanced chips made in geo-politically sensitive Taiwan - how secure is the future of our world?

    Planet Hope: Safeguarding West Africa’s last untouched rainforest with Inza Koné

    Planet Hope: Safeguarding West Africa’s last untouched rainforest with Inza Koné

    This is Planet Hope, a podcast from The Times in partnership with Rolex and its Perpetual Planet Initiative, hosted by The Story as a bonus weekly series each Sunday.
    In Côte d’Ivoire, the Tanoé-Ehy Forest stands as one of West Africa’s last untouched rainforests, a refuge for unique flora and fauna. Despite boasting West Africa's highest biodiversity, aggressive human activities have spared only 2% of the country’s forests. Environment Editor for The Times, Adam Vaughan is joined by Primate Conservation Biologist Inza Koné, a 2023 Rolex Awards for Enterprise Laureate, as he strives to restore the balance between nature's resilience and humanity's unchecked greed, offering hope to the endangered wildlife and surrounding communities that thrive in the Tanoé-Ehy Forest.

    Felony or witch hunt: Who told the best story at Trump’s trial?

    Donald Trump’s 'hush money' trial is in its final stages as the prosecution and defence teams have both now rested their cases. The jury will return on Tuesday for closing arguments - and maybe even a verdict. This is ultimately a trial of two competing stories. So who told theirs best?

REelDAnaCHda ,

Great range of topics covered

Love this podcast - helps me keep up to date with current news and introduces me to subjects I don’t know much about.

Cocky Fresh ,

Why? William Hague

Why is William Hauge on the podcast image? He’s not contributed on any of the episodes. What a farce! It shows the right whinge farce media is dishonest as ever! Bring on a new Levison investigation on the corrupt Tory administration.

And we now have Government officials top leaders do what ? They are being blocked by Cameron !!? Colluding why is this so surprising
I’m not surprised just disgusted
Psychopath behaviour and big government hand out money given

Corrupt politicians and military leaders from SAS being allowed to do anything they want
Evil begets Evil
