Network chief of research Stefaan Verhulst recently appeared on the inaugural episode of Global Partners Digital (GPD) podcast, In beta. GPD is a "social purpose company dedicated to fostering a digital environment underpinned by human rights and democratic values." GPD created the In beta podcast to "host interesting conversations with interesting people in our field, outside of the conventions of traditional policy discourse; which can sometimes work to confine people in silos, and discourage more open, experimental thinking."

In this first episode, Verhulst and Charles Bradley, GPD's executive director, discuss whether or not policymaking is stuck in the 19th century.
