In the first of our 2021 podcast series 'Bridging the Gaps', Mark Garavan talks about the reasons behind the anger that so many people are feeling at the moment and suggests ways to build a more positive narrative about the future.
Welcome to our new series of Bridging the Gaps. As with our previous series in 2020, and our 2019 podcast series Beyond the Obvious, it is co-organised by Feasta and the European Health Futures Forum (EHFF).
