#175 - Inflation, explained through eggs

21 mins | Mar 28, 2022

Today's episode from 28th March 2022. With inflation hitting the news quite regularly in the last few weeks, we thought we'd start the week by explaining what's going on using.... eggs. Like many things, the humble egg has also risen in price so we explore why and what it can teach us about the global economy. Then later, many of us need them to thrive, to be our cheerleaders and our shoulders to cry on. We look at how a repercussion of remote working has been a deterioration in work friendships. To the average person, the whole concept of inflation can feel confusing. For Vox, Emily Stewart attempts to explain the the economic term by using eggs as her case study. A work best friend can become your closest ally and even a reason to stay at a less than ideal company. Yet these friendships have almost disappeared after two years of lockdown. In The Cut, Jessica Goodman reflects on this valuable and unique type of friendship. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
