June 22nd, 2015

Episode 289 of 679 episodes

We look over the Greek precipice as Athenian protestors express their support of their government and their rage at the conditions of the country's lenders. The former Greek Prime Minister, George Papandreou, explains why he had to choose a bailout when in government and why, at last, he can drink tea in public without fearing for his safety. Also we hear from Zsolt Darvas, a senior fellow at the Brussels think tank, Bruegel, about the likely reaction from today's Eurogroup ministers' meeting. And finally, Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times considers the curious popular obsession with being "passionate" about your job. She wonders just how healthy this really is.
