On the final episode of Policy Forum Pod for 2020, Martyn Pearce is joined by Arnagretta Hunter, Sharon Bessell and John Falzon to look back on the year, and our special mini-series on the wellbeing economy.
It’ll go down as the year everybody is very happy to see the back of. But what have we learnt from 2020? And what can policymakers do to ensure 2021 is a whole lot better? On our last episode of Policy Forum Pod for the year, Martyn Pearce hosts his final podcast for Policy Forum and is joined by Professor Sharon Bessell, Dr Arnagretta Hunter, and Dr John Falzon to reflect on the conversations we’ve had in our special mini-series on the wellbeing economy.

The team also make some special announcements about the future of the podcast in 2021.
