The Brighton Paradox – final episodes released

The wait is over! This part of the journey comes to an end.

Our first eight episodes have inspired numerous conversations and big debates, which have led us to put on a series of inclusive events to continue the conversations and look at the future.

You can listen to the final two episodes here or on your favourite podcast channel now.

And if you’ve got some big ideas and opinions, come along to an event!

Episode Nine: LOOK UP!

Episode information
In this penultimate episode, we look at how the city wanting to attract big business and London money – is also the city pioneering the weird, small, experimental ideas that are often best scaled-up elsewhere.
And we try to answer the following questions:
  • Where does leadership come from in Brighton & Hove?
  • What kind of leadership is needed to get things done?
  • Do we need a mayor or stronger networks with teeth to make change?
  • Should Brighton be more of a regional leader as a city?
