The Week Unwrapped podcast: Sham science, a fake death and hair-raising prices

Is science facing a credibility crisis? Why did an Indian influencer fake her own death? And should men and women pay the same for a haircut?

Olly Mann and The Week delve behind the headlines and debate what really matters from the past seven days. A podcast for curious, open-minded people, it delivers fresh perspectives on politics, culture, technology and business. 

On each episode, writers and editors from The Week are joined by guests from across the country and around the world. Each proposes what they think is the real news of the week – not the story getting all the headlines right now, but the one with deeper consequences for all our lives.

It makes for a lively, enlightening discussion, ranging from the serious to the offbeat. Previous topics have included: whether solar engineering could refreeze the Arctic, why funerals are going out of fashion and what kind of art you can use to pay your tax bill.
