Play • 18 min

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 program with a catch-up on an action-packed week of news on the Ukraine War. Heavy tanks are now on their way to Kiev. Could this be a turning point in the war? The second half of the show features a discussion about kids and how the trend of programming children’s schedules down to the hour is impacting young people.
