Themed Playlists

Each episode of Next Economy has been tagged with certain themes of the Next Economy in order to aggregate them into themes. We’ve also organized some of our themes into larger themes: by Identity; by Interviewer; and by Topic.

We recognize that these themes are all interconnected , that all categories are subjective, and that – while reductionist approaches have their value in ordered systems – the economy is a complex system that must be viewed holistically. Our intention in organizing these episodes thematically is to help listeners more quickly access what’s most relevant.

If there are themes you don’t see listed here that you’d like to see, please share your suggestions with LIFT Partner & Producer of Next Economy Now Andrew Baskin (
