Warwick Economics launches new podcast series

The Department of Economics, University of Warwick, has published the first episode in its new podcast series, Warwick Econ Sounds.

With contributions from leading economists, the podcast series will present latest research from the Department and provide academic insight into topical societal and economic issues. It will discuss the nature of the discipline itself, exploring why economics is important for solving global problems as well impacting everyday life.

In the first episode, Dr Michela Redoano discusses how political campaigning on social media - especially Facebook - affected the outcome of the 2016 US presidential election.

The podcast series aims to provide insight relevant to students, members of the research community and wider public interested in finding out more about the issues our researchers investigate and why. New episodes will be published fortnightly and will be available to stream or download via the Departmental website.
