#3 - America’s economic boom and civic bust

22 mins | Jul 8, 2021

Today's episode from 9th July 2021. First off: growth is speeding up in the US at a remarkable rate. But, will its politics slow its economy down? And later on, we take a New York evening stroll with Lucy Prebble, a writer and executive producer of the hit TV show, Succession, following the release of a new trailer for its upcoming third season. Why do the US' economic and civic outlooks contrast so considerably? Janan Ganesh argues that the story is not that a rich country is so politically broken but that a politically broken country is so rich. Lidija Haas interviews Lucy Prebble. As they walk around New York at night, they discuss why ”I Hate Suzie” is the most personal work she’s made, the collaborative nature of theatre and television, and why everlasting tropes of women inspire cultural horror. 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.
