It's here! We’ve launched a new podcast called Pocket Dilemmas, dedicated to finding the big answers to the really big questions of our time.  

Presenters Jonathan Charles and Kerrie Law, plus guests, will be debating the dilemmas facing us all as we confront such challenges as the power of algorithms, the future of work and rise and rise of cryptocurrencies.

The season began with a very special live event on Brexit and its impact on the EBRD regions, recorded at our HQ in London on 3rd April 2019.You will be able to download all the episodes via iTunes, Spotify and Stitcher or find them here.

Episode 2: Should algorithms rule the world? 

Should algorithms rule the world? Maybe they do so already and we just never noticed. Will they in fact do a better job than mere humans? What are the ethical implications of the algorithm use for the policy makers? We invited Jonnie Penn, Google Technology Policy fellow, and Dawn Duhaney, Partnerships Manager at UK Wellcome Trust to be our guests and help us resolve this dilemma.

Episode 1:The Brexit dilemma and its impact on the EBRD regions

The first episode, dedicated to the origins of Brexit and its impact on the EBRD regions (over 30 economies inside and outside the EU), was recorded in front of a live audience at our headquarters at the heart of the City of London on 3rd April and you can now listen to it here. Are there winners and losers? What do people outside the EU think about Brexit? We have all the answers here.
