Jancis Robinson wrote the book on wine. Literally. The author of the first four editions of the definitive Oxford Companion to Wine, she has also published some 20 books on the subject and more than 1,500 articles for the Financial Times, for which she has been the wine correspondent since 1989. A member of the royal family's wine committee, she also helps select wines for Queen Elizabeth II. A trailblazer and a nimble scholar, Robinson—who, in addition to her work at the FT, pours her expertise into her jancisrobinson.com website—was the first wine writer ever to become an M.W., or Master of Wine, a rare distinction.With nearly five decades in the trade, Robinson has an acute awareness of the forces behind the field's constant evolution, and gives her readers context so that they can understand what it all means. Her primary interests lie not just in the flavors of wine, but rather in the stories that wines tell about where they came from, how they're made, and what they reveal about the world. A supporter of the Regenerative Viticulture Foundation, a nonprofit working to improve soil health, she also helps amplify the many ways in which the climate crisis is impacting the wine industry, such as harvest dates and “smoke taint.” By her account, the wine world is in more flux today than ever before. On this episode, Robinson speaks with Spencer about the power of old vines, the trials of translating taste and smell into language, and why some of today's most thoughtful producers are packaging great wines in cardboard boxes and cans.Special thanks to our Season 5 sponsor, L'ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts.Show notes:Full transcriptjancisrobinson.com[15:10] Regenerative Viticulture Foundation[17:16] The World Atlas of Wine[22:43] Vintage Time Charts[26:47] “Ancient Vines and Stunning Wines, But Portugal's Douro Valley Has a Problem”[28:37] Historic Vineyard Society[28:48] Sideways[31:14] Jancis Robinson's Wine Course[43:09] Master of Wine exam[46:04] The Oxford Companion to Wine[49:45] The 24-Hour Wine Expert[57:53] Wine Grapes[59:53] Design Classics[01:00:51] The Royal Opera House

In this lively interview series from the RSA, Matthew Taylor, puts a range of practitioners on the spot - from scholars to business leaders, politicians to journalists - by asking for big ideas to help build effective bridges to our new future. Have the last 15 years seen the most sustained decline in political freedom around the world since the 1930s? Chief Foreign Affairs columnist for the Financial Times, Gideon Rachman, believes so. And he points the finger of blame squarely at the rise of the modern 'strongman'. From Putin to Jinping, Orban to Bolsonaro,  liberal democracy, Rachman argues, is at risk of being eroded by the ego-driven antics of this new crop of leaders. But could Putin's war in Ukraine bring about the end of the era of the strongman?Gideon Rachman is the Chief Foreign Affairs columnist for the Financial Times. In 2016 he won the Orwell Prize for Journalism and was named Commentator of the Year at the European Press Prize awards. Previously he worked for The Economist for fifteen years, and has served as a foreign correspondent in Washington, Bangkok and Brussels. His latest book is, 'The Age of The Strongman: How the Cult of the Leader Threatens Democracy around the World'. A Tempo & Talker production for the RSA. In this time of global change, strong communities and initiatives that bring people together are more invaluable than ever before.

How To Create A Teamwork Culture

Teamwork may indeed make the dream work, but teams that lack a teamwork culture can be a nightmare. Pick your sport, and you can find a professional team that focused on acquiring talented players but failed to get the results their bulging salary budget should have brought. And the reason teams of star players fail more often than they should most often comes down to culture. Or at least, that those star players don't want to be part of a team-oriented culture. Instead, they want to shine on their own. The same is true of many organizations. Research suggests that just trying to capture talent while ignoring teamwork culture often leads to star performers failing to perform up to expectations. Culture makes the difference. In this episode, we'll review how to create a teamwork culture so that your team can ignore this fate. 0:00 Introduction 1:17 Hold Huddles 3:02 Find Uncommon Commonalities 5:01 Get Vulnerable 6:21 Create Civility 7:41 Reinforce Purpose 8:53 Conclusion This list might seem overwhelming at first. But the best teams do something similar to all of these. That doesn't mean they have to do it all at once, but leaders should get started working toward all of them, Fortunately, as these habits are built, the team starts to take over responsibility for continuing the trend, which means leaders can focus on the next one and the next one. Overtime, these habits form the culture of the team—a culture steeped in teamwork and a culture where everyone can do their best work ever. //DO YOUR BEST WORK EVER If you liked this video and you want to help your team do their best work ever, check out the free resources we've compiled at https://davidburkus.com/resources //LIKE THE SHIRT?

There is a major flaw in the international shipping industry: the determination of ultimate ownership. This secrecy leads to unfathomable corruption without consequence. This week, host Elisa is joined by award-winning reporter, Matthew Campbell, to discuss his new book, Dead in the Water: A True Story of Hijacking, Murder, and a Global Maritime Conspiracy. The book illustrates the shocking corruption and inner workings of the international shipping industry, told through the lens of the 2011 Brillante Virtuoso hijacking and its aftermath. During a time when piracy ran rapid, why was the Brillante Virtuoso hijacking such an unusual case? And how does the strange relationship between shipping and insurance play into this story?

Gender bias is everywhere, impacting how we view authority and power around the world. In fact, it's so pervasive—and potentially damaging to organizations—that our guest Mary Ann Sieghart wrote a book about it titled Authority Gap, which explores the critical issue of why women are often taken less seriously than men. This unconscious, double standard behavior affects the C Suite, boardrooms, and conference rooms alike—even the US Supreme Court and UK Parliament. We talk with Mary Ann – journalist, author, non-executive director, and television broadcaster – about why organizations and boards need to change gender bias culture and how to make the critical shift from the top down. It's a thought-provoking conversation well worth the listen for leaders of any gender.   If you want to hear more conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion, you might enjoy these other Redefiner episodes:  Power, Politics and Purpose: Leadership Lessons with Former PM of Australia Julia Gillard From Gillette to Jamba Juice: How to Lead Iconic Brands with Empathy, Purpose & Integrity with James D.

We're now in a bear market... But today's Stansberry Investor Hour episode won't focus on that. Instead, Dan has a unique guest whose rousing words will be a respite from the recent market carnage.  Vitaliy Katsenelson is the CEO of value-investing firm Investment Management Associates. He's the author of two books and an award-winning writer featured in publications like the Financial Times and Barron's. However, Vitaliy describes himself as a "student of life." And he has just released his third book, called Soul in the Game: The Art of a Meaningful Life. As a classical-music lover, Vitaliy had a revelation when writing about the travails faced by some of his favorite composers during their own creative processes – from being compared with a former great to pioneering a piece that broke the rules. It's about learning how to push past the anxiety and forge your own path in life and investing... In any profession, there's always going to be somebody who's considered to be the "greatest" whatever... It's so easy for us to just copy Warren Buffett. Instead, what we should be doing is we should be looking at how Warren Buffett is thinking. Also, we should not be afraid to think on our own... You can look at the way Buffett invests, and you can actually build your own path. The learning process can be complicated. But as Dan chimes in, "Things worth doing take time." He and Vitaliy also talk about the importance of repetition – whether it's rereading Nassim Taleb's book to unpeel its complicated layers or watching Pulp Fiction on repeat to understand the hype. In this episode, Vitaliy also shares concepts from Soul in the Game, such as striking the right balance between art and craft in life. And he gives what might be the shortest answer ever (just two words!) to Dan's "Final Question."

This week, the S&P 500 entered what analysts refer to as a bear market. The index has plunged around 22 percent from its most recent peak in January. Many growth stocks and crypto assets have crashed double or triple that amount.New home sales declined 17 percent in April, causing some analysts to argue that the housing market has peaked. And, in response to rising inflation, the Federal Reserve just approved its largest interest rate increase since 1994, meaning asset prices could dip even lower.To understand what's happening in the stock market right now, you have to understand the era that preceded it. Rana Foroohar is a columnist at The Financial Times, and the author of several books on the economy including “Makers and Takers” and “Don't Be Evil.” Her view is that a decade-plus of loose monetary policy has been the economic equivalent of a “sugar high,” which kept the prices of stocks, housing and other assets going up and up and up, even as the fundamentals of the economy have been eroding. This “everything bubble,” as she calls it, was bound to burst — and that's exactly what she thinks is happening right now.So I wanted to have her on the show to discuss the economic choices — and lack thereof — that led to this point. We also discuss why the increasing power of the financial sector hasn't resulted a stronger economy, whether the housing market has indeed hit its peak, the massive missed opportunity for public investment while interest rates were low, why policymakers treat asset price inflation so differently from other types of inflation, the true costs of the meat we eat and clothes we wear, why crypto represents the apotheosis of hyper-financialized capitalism, why I'm skeptical of the argument that we're moving rapidly toward a less globalized world and more.Book recommendations:All That She Carried by Tiya MilesBeautiful Country by Qian Julie WangThe Rise and Fall of the Neoliberal Order by Gary GerstleWe're hiring a researcher!

He's just released a new book called ‘Money Men: A Hot Startup, A Billion Dollar Fraud, A Fight For The Future' in which he explores both the story of Wirecard and its downfall and the efforts he went to as a journalist to investigate it. In what was one of the — if not *the* — financial investigations of the decade, Dan and his FT colleagues pursued a story of fraud, that is ready-made for a movie. Yet, it's a real-life story that reveals hidden worlds of short-sellers and whistleblowers, pornographers and private militias, hackers and spies. In Money Men, Dan explains not only the story of WireCard but also how he and his colleagues went about investigating it.In our discussion, we explore:- How Dan became a Financial Times journalist;- The types of story he likes to investigate and why WireCard fascinated him;- The lengths reporters need to go to, in order to get to the story;- How short sellers helped provide valuable insights;- The astonishing response of the German authorities to the Wirecard story;- Some incredible stories that unfolded as Dan investigated;- The personal toll such a story takes on a reporter;- The role of cognitive biases in reporting and our perception of the world.To find out more about Money Men, which is out now, visit https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/144/1444756/money-men/9781787635043.htmlThe German version is called The House of Wirecard: https://www.ullstein-buchverlage.de/nc/buch/details/house-of-wirecard-9783430210645.htmlTo learn more about Dan's investigation you can read this FT profile:https://www.ft.com/content/745e34a1-0ca7-432c-b062-950c20e41f03Dan also spoke at ECEC — Europe's largest Ethics & Compliance Conference in 2020 – you can watch a recording of that here: https://www.eqs.com/compliance-knowledge/events/ecec-mccrum/ .ECEC is returning soon, so do join me at ECEC 2022 in October.

Erotic Embodiments & Polymorphously Perverse Playgrounds of Pleasure Participant #1: You're listening to the Sex with Dr. Jess podcast, Sex and Relationship advice you can use Tonight welcome to the Sex with Dr. Jess Podcast. I'm your cohost, Brandon. We're here with my lovely other half, Dr. Jess. Hey, I want to say a big thank you to folks who have been sending in questions and comments, but also well wishes, I guess because we sounds sick or we've been saying we're sick. A bunch of people have written in and I've received more questions for the podcast over the last couple of weeks than I normally do. And I promise you we're going to get to them ASAP and try and get to all of them. I always do my best. I know I can't address every single thing, but if you did write in, thank you for the well wishes and we've got your questions and I promise we are slotting them in to share some thoughts. And oftentimes what I'm trying to do, if you're wondering why I don't get to them right away, is I'm trying to find a really good expert who's perhaps better equipped to address than just the two of us. And I'm excited for today's conversation. Before we get to it, a reminder about the Hot Money podcast, which I've just started digging into. And I mentioned it last week, but I'm happy to offer a reminder again that this is a new series about the porn industry and the money behind it. It is hosted in research by Financial Times reporters, and they started digging into the industry and found that, yes, the performers are bearing at all, but the information about the people and the businesses who run the industry, it's really hidden away, like it's some sort of top secret state secret. So on the Hot Money Podcast, their hosts, Patricia Nelson and Alex Barker, they're taking you as listeners inside the porn industry to uncover who is really pulling the strings. And their reporting reveals a story that goes beyond a single person. It's really about a bunch of billionaires, tech geniuses, and the most powerful finance companies in the world. Billionaires like sex, too. Billionaires like sex, too. Apparently they want to make some money off of it. They can buy the best sex, I guess. So. Be sure to listen to the Hot Money podcast wherever you get your podcasts. Now. Today we are going to be exploring and discussing erotic embodiments, ethical curiosity, especially for therapists and polymorphously perverse playgrounds of pleasure with our esteemed guest.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Bailey Tomkinson over Zoom video.St. Ives-based singer and songwriter Bailey Tomkinson recently released her highly-anticipated EP Califonia Fire. Returning with the warming track "Deja Vu". The woozy americana-toned single effuses elegance with its charming instrumentation and softly sung lyricism reared deep from Bailey's evocative emotions. Unravelling a melancholic, almost lullaby-like chorus, "Deja Vu" gifts us with a hazy concoction of shimmering guitars, soothing drums and gentle harmonies - a combination of pure bliss. Mixed by John Cornfield (Oasis, Muse) and produced by Gareth Young (Sugababes), "Deja Vu" shares the impressive strength of Bailey's heartfelt songwriting whilst also showcasing an artist confident in her musicality. First making headlines in 2020 when she beat both Dua Lipa and The Pussycat Dolls to the #1 spot on the iTunes video charts despite being an unsigned artist, Bailey has since been featured in The Daily Mail, The Times, Cornwall Live, The Financial Times, The Independent, BBC Radio 4 and more for her 2021 single "Bright Red". Criticising a local hotel for the destruction of coastal headland for G7 meeting space - something which recently saw an appeal work in her favour - Bailey's passion for the environment and protecting her homeland resonated with those who backed her single to reach #1 in the iTunes singer/songwriter charts. Bailey has already announced that she'll be playing a variety of festivals this summer including The Great Escape, Wilderness, Spring Classic, Rock Oyster and Altitude. Bailey's forthcoming EP California Fire is out now. We want to hear from you!
