What?

Welcome to WiSe Conversion, a podcast by Shamir Shehab about how the world works, from major global events to tiny matters in your backyards.

Each season, we sit down with some of the most important thinkers, activists, and leaders of our time to understand the realities of the world, demystify the hidden models and second-order consequences of the major events, and take a peek into our collective future.

Out of the frenzy of the daily news, WiSE conversation aims to bring back your attention to the most critical issues of our time, pertinent to our individual and collective future. Our goal in each episode is to make you think for yourself, look critically into things, ask questions, and inspire your intellectual curiosity.

Why?

The coronavirus pandemic has laid bare the fragilities and fault lines in our economic and political systems. We must not waste this crisis and bounce back to ‘business as usual’.
The coronavirus pandemic has laid bare the fragilities and fault lines in our economic and political systems. We must not waste this crisis and bounce back to ‘business as usual’. We rather leverage this crisis to fix our systems to bounce forward for a future that is just, fair, equitable, and sustainable. To make that happen, it would need bold thinking and courageous conversations to understand the realities of our world today and shape the public narrative. At WiSe Conversation, our ambition is to develop a deeper understanding of how the world works and help you make sense of the complexities of the world and the consequences of major events and collective actions.

Season One

The first season of the Wise Conversation Podcast will focus on ‘moving towards a resilient future’. Throughout the next-5 months, we will host 5-episodes featuring thinkers, makers, and leaders from across disciplines to have a multidisciplinary understanding of our world today as we endure once in a hundred-year global pandemic.

The ambition with the first season is to develop a generalist thesis of our reality and help you develop a broad sense of the structural issues and challenges of our time. The season aims to set the stage for our future discussions, where we will explore the nuances of these topics.
