Dr Ha-Joon Chang's podcast with the RSA (Royal Society of Arts) in its series, 'Bridges to the Future - Response to Covid-19'

Global crises cause big changes and reveal deep structural weaknesses. As drastic measures are taken across the world to stop the spread of COVID-19,  what are the short, medium and long term implications for our society, our economy, geopolitics - and us as individuals?

In this special interview series from the RSA, it’s chief executive, Matthew Taylor, talks to a range of practitioners - from scholars to business leaders, politicians to journalists - to assess the scale of the response and consider how we build effective bridges to our new future.
