Your audio magazine curated by Ryan Broderick to help you sail into the weekend. We've got a really special show for you this week. In Future View, we take a look at how Lisbon, Portugal's macro economic model could show other small countries the path to post pandemic recovery. We've also got a piece about how NFT's might be the crossover product that could potentially attract millions of ordinary people to the crypto world. This week's Deep Dive is one of the winning entries to Grist's climate-fiction short story contest. Afterglow is the story of a young woman on the verge of an interplanetary journey. Then we'll end with two great Conversation Starters: one about the Belarusian Olympian forced to escape to Poland a few weeks ago; and the other about the double edged sword of doubt. Ryan Broderick is a freelance journalist who has recently been published in outlets such as The Nation, The Verge, Eater, and Foreign Policy. He writes a newsletter about web culture and technology called Garbage Day and hosts a podcast about online platforms called The Content Mines. 00:01:03 - Section 1 - Future View - Foreign Policy and Financial Times 00:24:08 - Section 2 - Deep Dive, Features - Grist 00:54:06- Section 3 - Conversation Starters - Financial Times and Nautilus
