In this episode we dive into stories from The Economist’s festive double issue. In the 1980s Texas farmers looking for alternative meat sources pinned their hopes on the emu, an enormous and leggy bird. What can today’s market-watchers learn from the great emu bubble? We explore the curiously dangerous history of harmony in choral music. And in Belgium, the renovation of the world’s largest African museum at last confronts the country’s horrific colonial past. Jason Palmer hosts.
