#23 - Inside Boris Johnson’s money network
Today's episode from 6th August 2021. Up first this Friday: what links Jennifer Lopez, Boris Johnson and the Cotswolds? Find out as we go inside a secret club of super-rich individuals funding the UK's Conservative party. And later, as the Tokyo games come to an end this weekend, we learn how to look after our minds like an Olympian. The UK Prime Minister may have a tortured relationship with money, but a secretive club, that does not officially exist on any party literature, is transforming the Conservative’s fortunes. A team of Financial Times’s journalists reveal that a number of donors that supported Boris Johnson’s rise to power are also members of the “Advisory Board.” The high pressure experienced by top athletes can leave them vulnerable to mental health issues. Daniela Hernandez and Laine Higgins explore how the coping strategies they use can help us all. 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.
