The Risktory Podcast

  • 12 Days of Riskmas - Day 12 - Cathy Freeman

    30 DIC. 2021 · It’s Day 12 of Riskmas and – also the final episode of the Risktory Podcast. Today, a story that feels as real today as it did back then. Cathy Freeman, the great Australian runner, winning gold at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. A great tale that proves you don’t need the best of everything, to be the best.

  • 12 Days of Riskmas - Day 10 - Tenterfield Saddler

    28 DIC. 2021 · It is Day 10 of Riskmas and, today, the song Tenterfield Saddler. When you think of the great Australian, Peter Allen, you think of – quite naturally – I still call Australia home. But for those of us of a certain vintage and/or who are fans of Peter Allen, we all know that Tenterfield Saddler is perhaps his best work. While I still call Australia home is an expat love song, a song that exuberantly celebrates all that makes my homeland great, Tenterfield Saddler is a sadder, more poignant song that speaks to the precarious balance of life versus death. A balance that is challenged daily if you live in Australia. Today, let’s look at Tenterfield Saddler. One of the most beautiful songs of all time, and an unintentional homage to risk management.

  • 12 Days of Riskmas - Day 9 - Solzhenitsyn Part 2

    27 DIC. 2021 · Today, it’s Part 2 of my exploration into Russian dissident: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. On day 7, I looked at Solzhenitsyn’s life, positing the idea that Solzhenitsyn may never have gotten close to being as influential as he was, and is, were it not for the utter chaos that seemed to accompany him wherever he went. Today, I wanted to look at the big lessons we can take from Solzhenitsyn. Lessons that I think are especially important to know, in these chaotic times.

  • 12 Days of Riskmas - Day 8 - Suni Lee

    26 DIC. 2021 · When Simone Biles pulled out of the Tokyo Olympics, I was so incredibly sad. I have loved watching this underdog win everything and I was genuinely excited to see her dominate. I kinda thought. Well, what next then? I mean, who else in the US Gymnastic Team can compete with the ferocity and dominance of Biles? Suni Lee.

    23 DIC. 2021 · Welcome to Day 7 of Riskmas, and Part I of two Riskmas episodes dedicated to the Russian dissident, Alexander Solzhenitsyn.

In Part 2, I’ll explore his ideas and share with you just why Solzhenitsyn’s work will always stand the test of time.

  • 12 Days of Riskmas - Day 4 - Classic Liberalism

    20 DIC. 2021 · Welcome to Day 4 of Riskmas, and welcome to Classic Liberalism, the lost Philosophy. I don’t tend to engage in political discussion on the podcast, but I have mentioned a few times that I am a classic liberal. And I’ve received many an email and message along the lines of ‘I never picked you for a liberal’ or ‘I thought you had more common sense than to be a liberal’ or ‘You like socialism?’ I think there is confusion about classic liberalism versus progressive liberalism, which is a very different beast. So, today, I am going to explore the six key principles of classic liberalism, and explain the key difference between classic and progressive liberalism.

December 2021 Update: The Risktory Podcast is on indefinite hiatus. Thank you for all the support!

Risktory is a first of its kind podcast, dedicated to exploring the risk universe through the lens of history.

From Napoleon in his first Italian campaign, to the ancient city of Pompeii, to Jack the Ripper, risk has always had a place in helping humans to both guard against existential threat, but to also grasp and exploit exquisite opportunity.

Think risk is boring? Let Risktory blow your mind.

New episodes are released every Monday, 6:30am, US Eastern Time.
