From Rules to Reality is a podcast that highlights how regulation shapes, or fails to shape, our daily lives.

Learning from experts about where regulation is working, and where we can improve, is my focus in this podcast.

And this is because the Sigma chooses not to participate in the social pyramid. The Sigma is the guy that always does his own thing. Although the Sigma exi ...
