Customer Reviews

Excellent pod!

This is a long overdue look at the economics of emerging markets from a perspective that is understandable for the averge person. Really looking forward to more episodes.

Key listening on intersection of global tech, business & society

Emerge 85 has been doing important work aimed at understanding the intersection of global trends in technology, society, politics, business and culture. Especially good for considering perspectives beyond North America & Europe. Their first podcast episodes are fascinating discussions, and I'm happy to start getting their analysis in podcast form. Plus, Afshin has always been a talented moderator and is on podcast as well.
