Weekly Economics Podcast

“Each show is short, no longer than 20 minutes, and accessibly presented by the lively and engaging Kirsty Styles. Usually, she talks to James Meadway, senior economist at the NEF, but sometimes others, and each week they unpick some aspect of the UK economic news. As George Osborne appears to have been let off the leash since the election, coming up with madder and madder monetary policies, there is a lot to talk about.” – Miranda Sawyer, The Observer’s radio critic

Check out another glowing review of the podcast, which reached #1 in the UK iTunes News and Politics chart, here.

In 2017, we won a British Podcast Award for Best Current Affairs show. You can find our showreel here.

Now listened to hundreds of thousands of times, and still recording every week, but I am no longer the captain of the ship.


You can hear me talking about how technology *could* but might not save the world over on the comedy podcast Sustainababble.
