World in Progress: Stories that matter from around the world

World in Progress is a 30-minute radio show that connects the dots in a globalized era.

As our world continues to grow, it changes. Often in ways that are neither immediately perceptible nor logical.

At World in Progress, we offer insights and context. Through in-depth interviews and features, our team explores the far-reaching and interconnected consequences of a globalized economy.

From human rights to freedom of speech, movements that swim against the tide to the myriad interpretations of sustainable development, World in Progress shines a light on uncomfortable and often underreported issues that the global community cannot afford to ignore.
