#15 - Floods, heat waves, drought: how can cities adapt

36 mins | Jul 26, 2021

Today's episode from 27th July 2021. First this morning: Is the end near or is it already here? We look at a report into the climate crisis which argues that cities must step up to protect critical infrastructure and prepare for a more dangerous future. Later on, Winston Churchill, Will Smith and David Beckham all had one, but was it the key to their success? We discuss the importance of hobbies. The flooding that devastated towns in Germany and Belgium is just the start of what experts believe will be a continuing string of natural disasters caused by climate change. Patrick Sisson explores how a new report argues that cities must assume a wartime footing to protect critical infrastructure and prepare for a more dangerous future. As millennial burnout becomes a crisis, psychologists say keeping an unrelated hobby can do wonders. From Winston Churchill to Wall Street CEOs, best selling author Ryan Holiday reflects on how the world’s most successful people recharge, despite the all-consuming nature of their work. 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.
