194. GO BIG #1: A Big Idea for Gender Equality
Hello! For the next few episodes we’re going big with some of the ideas from Ed’s new book, Go Big. This week: could better parental leave for dads help promote gender equality? Icelandic Prime Minister and friend of the pod Katrín Jakobsdóttir explains Iceland’s world-leading approach. Then Molly Mayer from the Fawcett Society and Jeremy Davies from the Fatherhood Institute talk us through where we’re going wrong — and what to do about it.
Plus former senior advisor to President Obama Ben Rhodes on working in the White House, defending democracy and the power of podcasting.
Go Big is out now in hardback, ebook and audiobook, narrated by Ed and with a bonus conversation between Ed and Geoff: https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/1119347/go-big/9781847926241.html
