38 mins | Feb 18, 2022

Your audio magazine curated by Ryan Broderick to help you sail into the weekend. We've got an extra special episode for you this week, which starts off with a roundup of what's been trending — the Canadian protests, the Superbowl and cryptocurrency. Then we move on to our first feature, which is a very exciting submission to The Economist’s "By Invitation" series. Best-selling author Yuval Noah Harari offers his perspective on the Russia-Ukraine conflict and what’s at stake for the direction of human history. In our first conversation starter, we’ve got an immersive story about writing poetry in prison. Bunny McFadden recounts her uncle’s experiences writing poetry in prison and advocating for Indigenous rights. In our final story, what does the future hold for Peloton? With Amazon and Nike sniffing around, can the company retain its independence? 00:00:32 - Section 1 - Weekly roundup 00:01:38 - Section 2 - Conversation Starters - The Economist 00:14:11 - Section 3 - Conversation Starters - JSTOR Daily & WIRED
