Friday Focus provides listeners with a focused, half-hour masterclass on the big issues, events and trends driving the news and current events. The show features Janice Gross Stein, the founding director of the Munk School of Global Affairs and bestselling author, in conversation with Rudyard Griffiths, Chair and moderator of the Munk Debates.
The following is a sample of the Munk Debates’ weekly current affairs podcast, Friday Focus.
On this week’s edition of the Friday Focus podcast, Janice and Rudyard start the show with a discussion of allegations of Chinese election interference in Canada and why the government seems bent on downplaying the seriousness of what looks like an ongoing threat to Canadian Democracy. Next, the program dissects the outcome of the Nigerian elections. Was it effectively stolen by the ruling party? Friday Focus wraps up with a discussion of the deteriorating situation in Israel as security forces crack down on mass protests against judicial reform and Palestinian – Israeli violence escalates.
