Goodbye 2020, hello 2021! How do we start to make sense of one of the most turbulent, transformative and chaotic years in recent history? We’re always telling – and listening to – stories in order to make sense of the world around us. In this episode we explore how those narratives take shape and evolve over time, with the help of a journey to Ukraine. We also ask how we become better navigators in our ever-changing and messy world of ideas.
This is a reflective session with wandering host Ingrid Rieser, providing a retrospective end to the first of season of the Forest of Thought.
