The System is Broken. But That Means We Can Fix it.
Coming up on The Stakes podcast, host Kai Wright and team identify what's not working about our society and imagine ways to fix it. From healthcare to climate change, from the music we consume to the food that we eat, everything we experience is the result of some rule, decision or system that someone put in place. That means that if we don't like the world we live in now, we can design a better one. And we have to. From the people who brought you Caught, There Goes the Neighborhood and The United States of Anxiety.  Follow Kai on Twitter at @kai_wright.
