This is a sample of the Munk Members-Only Podcast.

The Munk Members Pod provides a focused, half-hour masterclass on current events with Janice Gross Stein, the founding director of the Munk School of Global Affairs and bestselling author. Rudyard Griffiths, Chair of the Munk Debates, is the podcast moderator. Janice and Rudyard unpack the big issues in the news and drill down into the people, events and trends that are shaping our lives in this extraordinary moment.

The inaugural episode of the Munk Members pod digs into three big stories in the news this week: the storming of U.S. capitol buildings by Trump supporters and what this says about the future of U.S. democracy; the fate of Hong Kong after the latest round of arrests under China’s new national security law and what if anything Canada should do about it; and the slow place of the vaccine rollout in Canada and much of the rest of developed world. Is government up to the challenge? Should we have given the job to the private sector?
