#18 - Can the EU and UK be good neighbours?

21 mins | Jul 29, 2021

Today's episode from 30th July 2021. First this Friday: As the EU publishes its proposals for simplifying some aspects of the Northern Ireland Protocol, we ask whether Britain and Brussels can ever become good neighbours? It's also International Day of Friendship today. So later on, grab a mug of coffee, sit back and enjoy a heartwarming story of a lockdown friendship between Alberto, a 92-year-old man living on his own, and Daniella, a busy young woman coping with loneliness. Brexit relations have left the European Union’s relationship with the UK fraught. But, there is strength to be found in working together, says Lionel Laurent Pause in Bloomberg Opinion. Daniella Isaacs reflects on her phone-based friendship with an older man, and what it taught her about the power of laughter, loneliness and processing difficult feelings. 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.
