Sense of ‘protest and turmoil’ as strikes drag on in garbage-strewn Paris; architect Phyllis Lambert on how to build better cities; Catholic group using phone data to out gay priests; and Cyclone Freddy devastates Malawi
Garbage is piling up in Paris as sanitation workers strike over government plans to raise the retirement age from 62 to 64. Matt Galloway talks to Ben Barnier, a senior correspondent with France Télévisions; and Elena Bassoli, a health economist at the Paris School of Economics.
Then, renowned Canadian architect Phyllis Lambert has always been a passionate advocate for design that puts people first. She talks to Galloway about how to build better cities, being engaged well into her 90s, and her new photography book Observation Is a Constant That Underlies All Approaches.
Plus, a conservative Catholic organization in the U.S. has spent millions on data from dating and hook-up apps, and used that data to track and publicly out gay priests. We talk to Michelle Boorstein, a religion reporter for the Washington Post; and discuss how your data could be harvested and used with Teresa Scassa, a professor and the Canada Research Chair in Information Law and Policy at the University of Ottawa.
And Cyclone Freddy has claimed hundreds of lives in Malawi, a country already dealing with a cholera outbreak. We talk to Felix Washon, working with the Malawi Red Cross Society in the country’s second largest city, Blantyre.
