The CapX Podcast: Eastern Menace


As part of our new year revamp of the CapX Podcast we’re bringing you another topical, multi-topic episode this week.

To kick off we head east and speak to former Ukrainian MP Alyona Hlivco about the perilous situation on her country’s borders. Is this just more brinkmanship from Vladimir Putin, or is there a real risk of conflict? Her answer is an interesting rejoinder to some of the more impassioned or plain wrongheaded commentary we’ve heard on this topic in the Western media.

We’ll also be talking all things domestic, including PartyGate, Sue Gray’s report, accusations of Tory Islamophobia, dodgy Covid death stats and, of course, artificial wombs. Our special guest this week is Aria Babu, researcher at The Enterpreneurs Network and rising star of the policy wonk world.
