Description

The pandemic has altered the world we live in. But what does life AFTER a global pandemic look like? Sonari Glinton makes sense of how the world continues to evolve in the face of a global crisis, and the rare chance it gives us to rethink our assumptions. This may be a once-in-a-lifetime challenge, but it’s also an opportunity to create real and lasting change. Now, What's Next? builds upon four seasons of the Morgan Stanley Ideas podcast that you'll find within this feed. (Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, members SIPC.)

The pandemic has created a huge mental health crisis. We’re all feeling the strain and many of us are admitting, for the first time, that we need help. It’s ok to not be ok. In the last episode of our season, we look at how this pandemic forces us to examine our own mental health, and helps us erase the stigma around asking for help.Host Sonari Glinton hears how COVID-19 exposed how broken our mental healthcare system already was. Dr. Curtis Wittman reflects on the mental health crisis from the health care front line. Ghazal Azarbad explains why this was the year she took therapy seriously. Camesha L. Jones is a therapist who is seeing more first-time patients than ever. And Dr. Kristen R. Choi is a Registered Nurse who teaches at UCLA. She’s thinking through how this crisis creates opportunities for new approaches and technologies for managing our own mental health.If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health, the following is a list of some mental health resources: In the U.S.A. In the UK. In Canada. For Kids and Teens.The guest speakers are neither employees nor affiliated with Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC. (“Morgan Stanley”).

Education was one of the pandemic’s first casualties. When schools closed overnight, students and teachers switched to virtual classrooms—a massive social experiment that hasn’t been easy on anyone. But it also revealed opportunities to rethink the ways in which we teach, and what is most valuable in education.Host Sonari Glinton speaks with students and teachers to find out how their lives have changed when it comes to school. Eight-year-old Escher Olson moved to a new country with his family, so that he could go to school in person rather than virtually. His mother, Sophie Olson, talks about why they made that decision. Olivia Clarke, a 16 -year-old student—and new author—opted into remote learning at her private girls school. She noticed that, like her, everyone else in her grade who did the same was Black. Ilana Drake and Pratham Dalal talk about what they fear losing when they can’t attend high school in person. Professor and teacher Lindy Elkins-Tanton says online learning will fail if we don’t change how we teach. And elementary school teacher Eppie Miller built an outdoor classroom to help her students through the pandemic.

Before the pandemic, about half of all Americans dined out at least twice a week. The pandemic has pushed hundreds of thousands of restaurants into bankruptcy—and the rest are struggling to stay afloat. In order to keep the lights on, many have shifted their business models, and are embracing innovations and experimentation.Host Sonari Glinton checks in with his friend Steve Lombardo in Chicago, who manages the Gibsons Restaurant Group. They’ve been hit hard by the pandemic. Colleen Vincent of the James Beard Foundation gives us a reality check on the restaurant industry at large—and explains why the stakes are so high. Executive Chef Shaun Garcia, from Soby’s in South Carolina, is teaching would-be diners how to cook his menu in their own homes. Chef Ed Hardy embraces the ghost kitchen model to cook his way out of trouble. And Chef Lex tells us what it was like to cook inside the NBA Bubble.Disclaimer Text:The guest speakers are neither employees nor affiliated with Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC. (“Morgan Stanley”).

Thanks to the pandemic, some 40% of Americans no longer head into the office to get work done. For many, the shift to remote work could be permanent, and yet millions of others do not have that luxury. This trend exacerbates the fault line between those who can, and those who can’t. But as much as experts tout “the end of the office”, a few with years of remote work experience argue that there’s a shelf life to this new way of working - and downsides that must be considered. Host Sonari Glinton hears from NASA astronaut Jessica Meir on her extreme remote work experience stationed aboard the International Space Station during the outbreak. Over in the UK, Ashley Mitchell sold everything he owned and moved himself - and his job - to a tropical paradise. In Mexico, Ali Darwich has worked remotely for years with Modern Tribe. Along with Shane Pearlman, the company founder, they advise us on the benefits and risks of shifting to a distributed workforce. And finally, Michelle Lee is an office workspace designer; she hopes the post-pandemic office is more than just plexiglass and cubicles.The guest speakers are neither employees nor affiliated with Morgan Stanley & Co.

Reimagining Travel

Reimagining Travel

2020-12-0225:583

Barren airports, anchored cruise ships, vacant hotels—it’s impossible to run a tourism business when international borders close and most of the world shelters in place. There is no doubt the pandemic has pushed the travel industry into a corner: one estimate suggests the industry will lose a trillion dollars in 2020 alone. How do you come back from that? For the time being, it feels like travelling for pleasure is a thing of the past, but the urge to leave home for a little while and explore something new is strong. And pent-up demand from locked-down, would-be tourists could flood the world again soon—but at what cost? What opportunities exist to rebuild a healthier, more sustainable industry?Host Sonari Glinton explores how travel could change. Sound designer Shawn Cole takes his family on a staycation adventure and Brian Hazelton of Winnebago tells us it’s been a record sales year. Meanwhile, Jessica Nabongo, the first Black woman to travel to every country in the world, is stuck at home, and she questions why she travels. In Barbados, Valerie Workman mourns the loss of an industry her island nation is nearly wholly dependent on, but also welcomes the break from the crowds. Traveler and writer Pico Iyer believes travel is about much more than visiting a new place—he says it’s fundamental to being human. And journalist Elizabeth Becker believes it’s time to rethink how we travel when we inevitably do so again.The guest speakers are neither employees nor affiliated with Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC.

At the height of the pandemic, headlines around the world proclaimed an exodus of people from urban centers toward smaller, and possibly safer, communities. The sudden mass shift to remote work—for those who could—helped fuel this rush to more pastoral, or at least less congested, environs. Pundits immediately declared that metropolises like New York City were dead. But are city communities truly at risk of collapse? Or could this moment instead usher in a long awaited renewal for the world’s most populous places?In this inaugural episode of the Now, What's Next? podcast, host Sonari Glinton introduces us to a host of folks all grappling with their relationship to the city. Helen Lummis left San Francisco and moved to a small cabin in Soda Springs, California. Lee Peart lost his job and had to leave London. He moved back in with his parents in a tiny seaside British town. Author Kevin Baker worries that his beloved New York City is being hollowed out for reasons that aren’t Covid-related. Tiffany Smith has long witnessed thousands of black families fleeing Chicago — but she’s staying put. And amidst all this worry and uncertainty, hip hop ballerina Allison Harsh was asking herself whether moving to the ‘big city’ to jumpstart her career is worth the risk.The guest speakers are neither employees nor affiliated with Morgan Stanley & Co.

The world is changing in ways we never expected. And the Morgan Stanley Ideas podcast is changing alongside it. Our new podcast looks at life AFTER the global pandemic. Sonari Glinton makes sense of how the world continues to evolve in the face of a global crisis and the rare chance it’s given us to rethink our assumptions. This may be a once-in-a-lifetime challenge, but it’s also an opportunity to create real and lasting change.Morgan Stanley Ideas is becoming Now, What’s Next? A new podcast starting November 18th.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. In 1969, Neil Armstrong’s first steps inspired advancements that led to everything from modern kitchen appliances to the Internet. But 50 years later, space exploration isn’t limited to government-funded missions, launches, and astronauts. Now, private companies are leading today’s “space race” and will help us enter a new era of growth—with satellites. In our season finale, we look toward the stars to see how the satellites of the future could help improve life here on Earth. We start in Washington State with Chris and Libie Cain, a husband and wife fishing team, whose albacore tuna business is strained by illegal fishing practices — one of the many problems that may soon be solved by satellites. Then, we talk to Mike Safyan, the V.P. of Launch at Planet Labs, a start-up that’s revolutionizing how satellites scan the Earth. Planet currently has over 150 satellites capturing data that it licenses to scientists and industry leaders who want the latest information on everything from forest fires to fish migratory patterns. David Kroodsma, an environmental data scientist with Global Fishing Watch, is one of the beneficiaries of the satellite data. He explains how satellite technology can help prescribe preventative medicine for the seas ​and h​elp people like the Cains, who rely on the economy of the ocean. Morgan Stanley Managing Director of Equity Research Adam Jonas tells us that satellites may soon disrupt the economy of data, shifting information away from some of the largest tech companies in the world to some of the smallest. Along the way, he helps us understand why we should all be excited about the new focus on the humble satellite, and what a booming New Space Economy will mean for Planet Earth.

The summer bestseller you read on the way to work, a flower delivery for your sister’s birthday, dinner made fresh from your weekly meal kit— today you can have every part of your day ordered online and delivered to you without ever leaving your home. But what about your favorite shop around the corner or even the malls of your childhood? With the growing convenience and efficiency of online shopping come questions about the future of traditional retail. Are brick-and-mortar stores fated to crumble under the weight of the e-commerce boom? Or will online and traditional stores find ways to coexist?On this episode of the Ideas Podcast, we’re going to one place where the future of retail is already in full swing: Tokyo. Akira Ito, CEO of Itoya, takes us on a tour of the stationery company’s 115 year-old flagship location. As we explore Itoya’s twelve-story playground of paper, we learn how Japan’s oldest stationery company has continued to thrive by curating experiences that keep customers shopping in their store. Then, Masahiro Ito, an executive director at ZOZO, Japan’s largest online apparel retailer, brings us into a future where that personalized, face-to-face shopping experience will be replicated on the Internet. And we visit Topdrawer, a store in Brookline, Massachusetts, where the best of both worlds has made its way into the American retail experience. Along the way, Morgan Stanley’s Managing Director of Retail Research, Kimberly Greenberger, highlights the power of the shopper’s rising expectations in shaping the future of retail.The host Ashley Milne-Tyte is a contractor of Pineapple Street Media. The guest speakers are neither employees nor affiliated with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC.

In the future, we’ll all still need a place to live. But as rents continue to rise and the housing market changes, we might need to adjust our vision of home. Instead of living in a tiny, expensive apartment or funneling our savings into a down payment for a single-family home, we might choose to live together for the sake of space, money, and, above all else, community. This type of housing model, known as co-living, has existed throughout history, but new iterations of co-living are becoming real housing options for all different types of people across the globe. In this episode of ​Ideas, ​we’re going to explore different versions of co-living to understand why it might help solve some of the housing market’s greatest challenges.We’ll start in London at The Collective: Old Oak, the world’s largest co-living complex, where young, mobile workforce is learning “how to have it all”—community, leisure, and an apartment in one of the world’s most expensive cities—by trading in personal space for communal luxuries. But, as history has shown, communal living isn’t just limited to one demographic. We’ll also travel to Portland, Oregon, for a tour of PDX Commons, a co-housing community for 55-year-olds and older, to see how some members of the Baby Boomer generation will participate in the housing market of the future and, simultaneously, combat some of the stigma attached to aging. Finally, we’ll make our last stop in Copenhagen, Denmark, where Almenr, a startup that matches co-living tenants with financial advisors, architects, and designers, is helping niche communities create the co-living spaces of their dreams. Along the way, we’ll hear from Richard Hill, the head of commercial real estate research a Morgan Stanley. He’ll explain some of the fundamental changes in the traditional housing market, the challenges within the current market, and why co-living might be a viable housing solution for all.The host Ashley Milne-Tyte is a contractor of Pineapple Street Media.  The guest speakers are neither employees nor affiliated with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC.

Have you ever tasted a habanada pepper? An upstate abundance potato? A Robin’s Koginut squash? These new vegetable breeds, all created by Row Seven Seed Company, are bursting with new flavors that come straight from the earth. But what about those wasabi seaweed snacks? Or something like beer chips? Or crazy ice cream flavors that seem to come from natural sources but are most-likely made in a lab? The flavor industry is worth billions of dollars, but with new technology, our changing environment, globalization, and a better understanding of how to invent new types of food, the future of flavor is being pulled in two very different directions. As different players the food industry invent new flavors, consumers will have to make new choices about what flavors they want: flavors from the farm or the lab.In this episode of the Ideas podcast, we explore these two different locations to understand the future of the flavor industry. First, we travel to the Fingerlakes region in upstate New York, where we’ll tag along with Michael Mazourek, a plant breeder and co-founder of Row Seven Seed, as he delivers his produce and spreads Row Seven’s mission: to change our agricultural system by breeding for flavor. We then head to a lab across the country in Portland, Oregon, where we’ll meet Sarah Masoni, a flavor designer with a “million dollar palate.” There, Sarah will tell us why the future of flavor isn’t as subjective as we might think. And, finally, we’ll hear from Vincent Sinisi, a food retail analyst at Morgan Stanley, about how both consumers and food retailers are creating new opportunities for both farm and lab-made flavors to appear on your supermarket shelves.The host Ashley Milne-Tyte is a contractor of Pineapple Street Media. The guest speakers are neither employees nor affiliated with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC.

2019-04-2222:24

As you walk down the street, sit in your office, or even make yourself a cup of coffee, take a look around and consider what everything is made of. ​More often than not, the answer will be: plastic. Our world is made of plastic. It’s one of the most affordable, versatile and indestructible materials we have. But the very properties that make plastic perfect for so much have also made it problematic. Most of that plastic is still here, and it will be for hundreds of years. But in the future, we might be able to replace the plastic we’ve come to rely on with a plant-based material that holds all the promise of plastic, without the environmental costs. We're talking about something called "bioplastics."In this episode of the Ideas podcast, we take you to a laboratory in England to see these bioplastics in action. First, Vincent Andrews, Chemicals and Agriculture Equity Research Analyst at Morgan Stanley helps us understand how traditional plastic has become an integral part of both the economy and our daily lives. Next, Cole Rosengren, Senior Editor of ​Waste Dive ​explains how a little-known international policy has thwarted our the recycling system as we know it. We then sit down with David Rachelson, the Vice President of Sustainability at Rubicon Global, a startup that connects plastics producers, consumers, haulers and cities to tackle some of the inefficiencies of the current recycling model. Finally, we travel to a laboratory in Southampton, where we meet Paul Mines, the CEO of Biome Technologies, a company that is using materials such as cornstarch, potatoes and algae to create a sustainable, compostable plastic of the future.  The host Ashley Milne-Tyte is a contractor of Pineapple Street Media.

Darting into the Future

Darting into the Future

You many have imagined a future of transit where we all blast off to work strapped into personal jetpacks or shuttle our kids to and from school in flying cars. But the future is now, and the innovative transportation systems of today are surprising in their own right. The best among them are reimagining infrastructure design and project funding to get people moving across town and around the globe. In this second episode of the new season of the Ideas podcast, we head to a place where the future of transportation is already in motion: Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. There, we ride a DART bus, one of the most advanced bus rapid transit systems in the world. Steven Higashide, Director of Research for TransitCenter, helps us understand the road blocks between U.S. cities and better public transit, and we learn from Sarah Kaufman, of the Rudin Center Transportation at NYU, about ways to move beyond ride sharing and fill the gaps that existing transportation can’t cover. Finally, Michael Zezas, Managing Director and Chief US Public Policy & Municipal Strategist at Morgan Stanley, helps us imagine a future of interconnected services—autonomous vehicles linking riders to mass transit on rails and roads—that respond creatively to the city’s existing infrastructure challenges.The host Ashley Milne-Tyte is a contractor of Pineapple Street Media.  The guest speakers are neither employees nor affiliated with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC.

No Cash On Hand

No Cash On Hand

2019-03-1820:39

Rummaging through your pockets in search of change and crumpled bills to pay for your morning coffee may still feel routine, but in some parts of the world, this familiar scene is just a memory. The cashless economy is already starting to take shape, and as we continue to create innovative ways to exchange money without pulling out our wallets, cash might become a thing of the past. And while some countries struggle with questions of fairness and inclusivity as governments and businesses forgo cash, others have already stepped into a cashless future where digital transactions are the only way to pay.In this episode of the Ideas podcast, we travel to Sweden, a country where cash makes up just one percent of the entire economy. First, we hear from Charlie Warzel, a senior technology reporter at Buzzfeed News, who literally puts skin in the cashless game while on a trip to Stockholm and receives an RFID chip implant that allows him to pay for anything with his hand. We also follow Swedish journalist, Asa Secher, as she navigates her daily routine in a society that has already embraced a nearly-cashless economy. Next, we go to Lisa Servon, the chair of the City and Regional Planning Department at the University of Pennsylvania, to understand the potential impacts of going cashless here in the U.S.: who wins, who loses, and who gets left behind. And James Faucette, leader of Morgan Stanley’s Payments and US Comm Systems research efforts, explains what it takes for a country to go cashless, and how such a dramatic shift will affect more than just our bank accounts.The host Ashley Milne-Tyte is a contractor of Pineapple Street Media. Certain guest speakers may be neither employees nor affiliated with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC or its affiliates (“Morgan Stanley”).

Ever wonder what your life might be like 5, 10, 20 years from now? This season, we’re taking you around the globe -- everywhere from Tanzania to Sweden to Japan -- to catch a glimpse of what the future might hold. Because the future ​is ​happening somewhere. It’s just a matter of knowing where to find it. New season starts the first week of March.
Season four of the Ideas Podcast will be starting soon, but in the meantime, we’re kicking things off with a bonus episode in honor of Climate Week NYC: an annual summit where scientists, government officials, and CEOs come together to showcase innovations, programs, and policies that are leading the fight against climate change. But for many key players in today’s financial world, the future of climate action isn’t relegated to one week. At Morgan Stanley, there is a whole team of researchers and financial analysts dedicated to helping investors and consumers make environmentally-sustainable, lucrative financial decisions. In this bonus episode, we sit down for an exclusive interview with Jessica Alsford, Managing Director and the head of Morgan Stanley’s Sustainability Research team. Alsford reveals how environmental, social and governance factors -- or ESG -- impact the way businesses in every sector are thinking about the future of investing. But these aren’t just concerns for investors. Alsford explains why purchasing everything from a t-shirt to a tomato means climate change is not just an ESG issue, but an everybody issue.DISCLAIMERThe host Ashley Milne-Tyte is a contractor of Pineapple Street Media. The guest speakers are neither employees nor affiliated with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC.

The word “sports” may conjure images of athletes barreling down a football field or burying a three-pointer, but the latest stadium-rousing athletes rarely if ever have to leave their chairs. Welcome to the world of professional video-gaming, or eSports. Around the world, eSports is looking more and more like any big-league sport, complete with sponsorships, merchandising, and arenas full of fans. And now, eSports is on track to become a multibillion-dollar industry.In this episode of the Ideas Podcast, we explore how a hobby that may not seem like a “real sport” became a very real market. Jacob Wolf, an ESPN journalist, helps us understand why eSports playoffs are topping the attendance to MLB and NHL games. Then, Brian Nowak, a Managing Director at Morgan Stanley, explains how that popularity launched an entire market that may one day include dedicated eSports arenas, fantasy eSports leagues, and team jerseys made of pixels. And along the way, some eSports superfans invite us to a watch-party to feel the rush of a brand new sports experience.The host Ashley Milne-Tyte is an employee of Pineapple Street Media.

After long careers and years of saving, many of today’s retirees have decided not to set sail on an exotic cruise or spend their days on the golf course. They’re changing what it means to retire by re-entering the workforce—and creating an entirely new market in the process.In this episode of the Ideas podcast, we look at the tech startups, nonprofits, and even the baby boomers themselves who are shaping the newly retired market.

For the past 40 years, Major League Baseball’s off-season has been dominated by a frenzied bidding war to sign available free agents. But this year, everything changed—the free-agent market froze. For months, almost none of the 200 free agents were signed. So what happened? And what does the market shift mean for the future of America’s pastime?This season on the Ideas Podcast, we’ve been exploring unexpected markets. In this episode, we’ll look at what happens when a seemingly healthy market unexpectedly collapses. We talk to Ben Reiter, a journalist at Sports Illustrated who made a crazy prediction in 2014—that the Houston Astros, the then-worst team in baseball, would win the 2017 World Series. That Ben’s call came true wasn’t just a fluke—but reflected how teams now approach hiring players, particularly free agents. Then, J.C. Bradbury, a professor at Kennesaw State University in Georgia, takes us deep into the economics of baseball to explain why it suddenly has become good business to field a losing team. And Lou Pirenc, the Global Head of Research Data at Morgan Stanley, tells us about how baseball’s longstanding obsession with player statistics, and more recent expansion of data analysis into every aspect of the game as a business, has enthusiastic adherents and practitioners in every corner of the global market. For more, visit: https://morganstanley.com/podcast The host Ashley Milne-Tyte is an employee of Pineapple Street Media.

Virtual reality is popping up in almost every industry, doing things that were once unimaginable. How did it grow from the stuff of Sci-Fi into a real world revolution? As with so many things, it began with a language. In this episode of the Ideas podcast, we explore the virtual future by looking at one of the earliest VR worlds. Bryan Carter, a professor at the University of Arizona, guides us on a tour of Virtual Harlem, an early VR world that allowed his students to walk the streets of the Harlem Renaissance. Then, Alexis Macklin, an analyst for Greenlight Insights, takes us to the future—one filled with virtual coffee dates, schools, and vacations. Along the way, we explore the coding language at the root of the VR explosion: C++. Morgan Stanley Managing Director Bjarne Stroustrup, who created the C++ programming language more than 30 years ago, tells us what it took to build a near-universal coding language that took on a life of its own, and has become the source code for everything from web browsers and video games to financial modelling and space exploration. For more, visit http://morganstanley.com/ideas.The host Ashley Milne-Tyte is an employee of Pineapple Street Media.
