The latest Podcast with Marc Ross is out now. This time we focus on some wider aspects of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and also crypto currencies. We also review a thriller starring Benedict Cumberbatch and great book on financial crises by fund manager George Cooper.
In particular I was struck by this opening paragraph in the article (which is well worth reading)
“In The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, the philosopher of science Thomas Kuhn observed that scientists spend long periods taking small steps. They pose and solve puzzles while collectively interpreting all data within a fixed worldview or theoretical framework, which Kuhn called a paradigm. Sooner or later, though, facts crop up that clash with the reigning paradigm. Crisis ensues. The scientists wring their hands, reexamine their assumptions and eventually make a revolutionary shift to a new paradigm, a radically different and truer understanding of nature. Then incremental progress resumes.”
In this episode of Brigadoon Radio, Gerald Ashley and Marc Ross discuss Canada’s ‘Freedom Convoy’ + Ambassador Bridge trucker protest, Ukraine status update + Diplomacy, the 2016 Bitfinex hack + DOJ arrest of New York City married couple Ilya Lichtenstein and Heather Morgan. Plus The Sahel and Uranium. and what they are reading and watching.
Apologies for poor sound.
Production issues now sorted – Episode Three will have a higher production quality and will include our first guest.
I have teamed up with Marc Ross a Washington DC based strategist, lobbyist and political PR guru to do a fortnightly podcast on Global Politics, Global Business and a bit on Culture and our personal reviews.
This is the first/pilot episode, there are few bits n pieces to iron out and tighten up, but this will give a good idea of our future output.
Back in March 2017 I wrote this piece about the “over-connected” world. Given the current gyrations in supply chains, and the increasing worries about networks and their resilience I thought it worth re-publishing
