#33 - Special ep: In conversation with Emily Stewart

42 mins | Mar 11, 2022

Your audio magazine curated by Ryan Broderick to help you sail into the weekend. This week was International Women’s Day, so all of our stories are by or about women. We start with a roundup of stories you might have missed, including the Sydney floods, British popstars in court over copyright infringement and Ukraine's success at the Winter Paralympics. We move on to a special conversation with Emily Stewart, who is a senior reporter for Vox. She has a knack for making the complex world of business and money accessible to ordinary people. Our first Conversation Starter is an essay from Aeon by philosopher Andy West, who applies the icon Simone de Beauvoir's teachings into the context of life inside prison. Finally, we end with a nod to the history of feminism, but in a very different way. Jessa Crispin writes for JSTOR Daily that activism for gender equality has for a long time been bedfellows with practices of witchcraft, and the two have intersected in a multitude of ways over decades. Prior to joining Vox, Emily Stewart covered politics for The Street amid the rise of Donald Trump. She writes about the intersection of business, politics, and the economy. Her story "The supply chain crisis, explained by Adele", offers great insight into the current crunch of the music industry. You can listen to it and other of Emily's stories on Curio; search for her name on your Discover page. 00:00:52- Section 1 - Weekly Roundup 00:01:50 - Section 2 - Features - Emily Stewart of Vox 00:11:18 - Section 3 - Conversation Starters - Aeon & JSTOR Daily
