This week’s guest is ten years old and one of the fiercest, smartest people we’ve ever had on this podcast. Lilly Platt calls in from Zeist in the Netherlands to tell us why she’s helping to lead the tens of thousands of children across Europe striking to demand action on climate change. And from skipping school to skipping the queue, anti-money laundering expert Laure Brillaud from Transparency International is here from Brussels to cast a light on the murky world of ‘golden visas’ for sale in Europe. Plus: positive pop, bad meat, and one very happy cellist.
