    • Society & Culture

Welcome to the 30th episode of the podcast. Every tenth episode we make is special in that we talk to someone who is either of Estonian descent or is a big friend of Estonia who is contributing to the success of Estonia. If you haven’t listened to our previous special episode #10 with Jenik Radon or episode #20 with Steve Jürvetson, make sure to catch up on them.

My guest today is a British journalist Edward Lucas, who is widely known for his work as senior editor at The Economist. Mr. Lucas is an expert in energy, intelligence and cyber-security issues, he has covered Central and Eastern Europe for more than 20 years. He is also a senior vice-president at the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA).

In this podcast, you'll hear us focus on a variety of thought-provoking topics 


Why shouldn’t we use the term “post-Soviet”?
What does he think are key aspects of communication when you talk about a big, unfathomable things?
What does he think are the potentials of the Estonian e-residency concept at a larger scale?
What have Estonians done right, and where can be do better?
What are some of the things that we should learn from other countries?
What current developments in society worry him, and how should humanity address them?
