Description

An extra episode of I've Been Thinking with Peter Frankopan in your podcast feed this week.

In the media we see daily stories of projected food shortages, lack of workers and of course right now across the UK, queues on petrol forecourts.

The UK is not alone in seeing disruption to its supply chains with incidents and examples across the globe not least due to the Covid pandemic and the Ever Given shipping incident in the Suez Canal.

Ross Kennedy is a U.S.-based logistics and supply chain expert with more than fifteen years in worldwide transportation, procurement, and analysis, and on this episode of I've Been Think Peter and Ross discuss the routes of the problems we see today of food shortages on our supermarket shelves, why the UK and others are in a bind and Ross lays out the historic nature of the supple chain model.

Do follow Ross on Twitter - @man_integrated and Peter @peterfrankopan.

I've Been Thinking episode 18 looks at the face of Russian opposition politics, Alexei Navalny.
