    States of emergency: Nigeria

    States of emergency: Nigeria

    Criminal gangs in north-western states, jihadists in the north-east, a rebellion in the south-east: kidnappers, warlords and cattle rustlers are making the country ungovernable. The new head of Samsung Electronics has a legacy to build—and aims to do so by breaking into the cut-throat business of processor chips. And the sci-fi classic “Dune” gets a good cinematic treatment at last.

    Russia continues to pile pressure on the country, and will soon have the power to cut off its natural gas. Our correspondent pays a visit to find how Ukrainians cope. The simplest solution to renewables’ intermittency is to move electricity around—but that requires vast new international networks of seriously beefy cables. And Canada’s version of American football is wasting away.

    Meeting them where they are: a British MP’s murder

    Sir David Amess was killed doing what he loved: speaking directly with voters. We examine the dangers inherent in the “constituency surgeries” that British politicians cherish. The fight against tuberculosis is made harder by mutations that confer drug resistance; we look at research that has traced nearly every one of them. And why Andy Warhol is big in Iran, again.

    Chinese draggin’: growth slows

    Chinese draggin’: growth slows

    A paltry GDP rise is down to the pandemic, power and property. We ask what growing pains President Xi Jinping will endure in the name of economic reforms. Emmanuel Macron, France’s president, will probably end up in the second round of next year’s election; who will stand against him is ever more unpredictable. And fixing meeting inefficiency with an 850-year-old idea.

    Port, and a storm: sectarian violence in Lebanon

    The effort to investigate last year’s port explosion in Beirut has fired up political and religious tensions—resulting in Lebanon’s worst violence in years. We speak with Dmitry Muratov, a Russian journalist who shared this year’s Nobel peace prize, about what the award means to him, and to press freedom. And why autocratic regimes like to snap up English football clubs.

    For watt it’s worth: energy markets’ squeeze

    A fossil-fuel scramble reveals energy markets in desperate need of a redesign. We examine what must be done to secure a renewable future. Throngs of Hong Kong residents fleeing China’s tightening hand are settling in Britain; our correspondent finds an immigrant group unlike any that came before. And the boom in “femtech” entrepreneurs at last focusing on women’s health.

Ad-free for subscribers?

The podcast is great, But the ads in this show (at least in Germany) are super annoying. How about an ad-free podcast feed for Economist subscribers? Even apple podcast now allows for custom RSS feeds

The best discovery

Was recommended by a friend and I love the thought provoking topics on these episodes! Also that they start with currently relevant topics that are usually in the news and mix it with other diverse topics that are not in the news but are equally important and also something that you are not usually aware of or hear about everyday. Therefore you learn something new from every episode but you are also kept up to date with current affairs. Love the simplicity of the explanations abs discussions as well! Thanks!
