The Munk Members Podcast 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 full length episode digs into three big stories in the news this week — The slow vaccine rollout in Canada and Europe; why are some countries so much better at inoculating their populations? — Protest and power; are the spate of protests for more democracy everywhere from Russia to Hong Kong likely to create any kind of lasting reform? — GameStop Redux; with upwards of $20 billion in trading losses for hedge funds and individual investors alike, what did we learn from the latest Wall Street frenzy?
