In this episode, Anthony talks with Scott Armstrong, former Editor-in-Chief of Arabian Business Magazine and mental health advocate launching the start-up consultancy, Mentl. They begin by discussing the human history of experiencing homelessness and the detrimental effects of this feeling on society. Scott then dives into his mission of mental health advocacy of fighting toxic work environments and promoting corporate leadership that supports mental wellbeing, as well as the wide range of benefits that come with it.
Next, Oliver Bullough joins Anthony to discuss his latest book, ‘Butler to the World: How Britain Became the Servant of Tycoons, Tax Dodgers, Kleptocrats, and Criminals,’ which provides an insight into money laundering in the United Kingdom. Oliver takes Anthony through the history of kleptocracy from the British Empire to today, and explores the corruption of shell corporations in the United States.
Finally, Luciana Berger, a former Labour Party Member of Parliament (MP) in the United Kingdom, joins Anthony only moments after Boris Johnson resigned as Prime Minister. Luciana shares her experiences in British politics before diving into the factors influencing Boris’ resignation. They discuss the government’s shortcomings, including scandals, parliamentary investigations, and rule-breaking, leading to over 50 MP’s quitting and forcing the Prime Minister to resign.
