Your audio magazine curated by Ryan Broderick to help you sail into the weekend. For starters, a roundup of stories from around the app, including Boris Johnson's alleged lockdown breaches, Joe Biden's support for Ukraine and how existing economic metrics aren't reflective of the poorest. Our Feature goes behind the curtains of Shopify, which has been transformed from a quiet enterprise to a global power worth $177 billion. We move on to Conversation Starters, the first of which comes from a journalist living in Beijing looking at what life is like in one of the largest COVID bubbles — China. In our final piece, we reflect on the life and legacy of one of the first African American military aviators in the US Armed Forces, Charles McGee. 00:00:00 - Section 1 - Weekly Roundup 00:02:20 - Section 2 - Features - Bloomberg Businessweek 00:32:08 - Section 3 - Conversation Starters - The Economist
