Let’s Put it on the Table, ep. 1: Where the Idea Was Born

Introducing a new podcast series by the Macro-Development Research Initiative, from the Graduate Institute in Geneva. “Let’s put it on the table” will discuss development-related topics that are not receiving enough attention.

Our guest for this episode is Alejandro Castro, one of the founding members of Club Macro, the Club de Macroeconomía UCV, the student analysis group of macroeconomic policy at Universidad Central de Venezuela. Club Macro was the seed that later shaped the idea for our international initiative: The Macro-Development Research Initiative.

Let’s make a talk show!

Geneva Intl. is always looking for new talent, and a couple of weeks ago we found it among the students at the Graduate Institute. During our welcome day event we put all of these people in front of a microphone and asked them to make a talk show from scratch. Here’s the result! 

If you too would like to take part in this initiative, email us at Gisa.podcast@graduateinstitute.ch and tell us what you’d like to do.
