Much is still unknown about how the world will recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
Rather than postulate on the ifs and maybes, The Anthill podcast by non-profit media organisation The Conversation recently released a podcast series 'Recovery: how the world rebuilt after past crises'.
The hosts talk to academic experts about past crises - from the black death in the 1340s to the 2008 global financial crisis - and examine how the world rebuilt (or failed to rebuild) from them. The question being: what can we learn from these events during the coronavirus pandemic?
In this week's podcast, we are joined by host and producer Annabel Bligh who is also The Conversation's business and economy editor. She tells us why taking a constructive approach to the bleak topic of the coronavirus pandemic can help readers and society at large.
