Every country has one; sometimes bellicose, sometimes wistful, occasionally jaunty and usually intensely patriotic. But what makes a good national anthem? The journalist Alex Marshall has written a book on the subject, called Republic or Death: Travels in search of National Anthems. He spoke to Nick Higham about some of the world's best-known anthems, some of the more unexpected, and why he dislikes our own quite so intensely.
Jessica Helfand and Michael Bierut explore how design works within complex organizations to shape decisions, ideas, products, and more. Guests include clients from many industries and designers in many fields. Recorded at the Yale School of Management.
