    Moderated by C2G’s Executive Director Janos Pasztor, a diverse all-youth panel of speakers discuss their perspectives about the risk of overshooting 1.5-2C or even higher levels of global warming and whether they think young people are aware of SRM and the governance challenges it raises.

    Judah Grunstein, editor-in-chief of World Politics Review, joins Doorstep co-hosts Nick Gvosdev and Tatiana Serafin for his annual review of global power shifts. The past 12 months saw economies rapidly pivoting to new markets and technologies as a result of the the Russia-Ukraine War, the protracted shutdown of China and its zero-COVID policy, and other supply chain disruptions.
    How will this trajectory re-balance power between the Global North and Global South in 2023? Will competition for governance models lead to new ways of managing societies? Can the U.S. effectively engage with the world or will it fall behind?

Guests are great, you need a new interviewer

The experts interviewed are so interesting. Alex is not a talented interviewer. If he’s selecting the experts he’s doing a wonderful job, but he’s not great at conducting interviews and brings down the quality of the conversation.

Important conversations

As an outsider to the international relations and global ethics communities(Bartender by night, mathematician/physicist by day) this is an incredible source for staying informed and understanding how nations, states, parties and individual actors are shaping the world. Obviously this podcast is not all encompassing, and it shouldn’t be, but is does have broad reach and myriad guests discussing important issues that affect many different populations.

4CsnFun ,

A Very Important Source

Really very special as forums go; as with most forums of this ilk, some speakers are terribly boring; certain others, however, are pure gold! (Could be 5-star rather than 4 if more effort was made in the production/audio quality, which is sporadic at best)
