The interviews, lead by Blasting News's newsroom, focus on the challenges that companies, institutions, and research centers face in an increasingly digital world, and on the profound socio-economic transformations, humankind is experiencing in this unprecedented period.

1.The Climate change series (ongoing)

Ten years is about the time we have left to prevent the planet from becoming an uninhabitable place for humankind. Data from NASA shows that the 2010-2019 decade was the hottest ever recorded. In 2020, we have seen increasing temperatures, wildfires, marine heatwaves, deadly storms, and extensive ice loss. Therefore, our planet is crying for help and we have to listen and act to help it. From Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim - climate change activist and director of the Association of Fulani Women and Indigenous Peoples of Chad (AFPAT) - to Jeroom Remmers, director of the Netherlands-based nonprofit True Animal Protein Price Coalition (Tapp Coalition) - four climate activists portray the future of our planet and share with us how we can change this situation through a series of exclusive interviews.

2.The Eunomia series (ongoing)

The consumption of news has known a considerable shift in the past years with the evolution of social media. People are sharing information at a speed that was never reached before and learn about every part of the world instantly. If this could be seen as progress, it could also lead to the spread of misinformation, a considerable danger for society. In order to find a solution to counter Fake News, EUNOMIA was created. The open-source platform uses blockchain technology that protects users’ data and gives them the tools to self-verify the trustworthiness of the content they see via an “info hygiene routine.”

3.The Media theorists series

The way people connect with the outside world and the way that we consume news and journalism has experienced a considerable shift during this unprecedented time. At the same time, journalists and media outlets have suffered the impact of the pandemic and are trying to find new models and strategies to fulfill their mission. In order to picture the evolution, changes, and risks of this period, Blasting News’ editorial team spoke with journalists and media theorists about the impact of coronavirus on the media industry. From Sally Lehrman - the Chief executive and founder of the Trust Project - to Richard Gingras - Vice President of News at Google - five media theorists depict the future of media, its challenges, and our role in this evolution through a series of exclusive interviews.

4.The COVID-19 series

The first series of Blasting Talks' interviews was about the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the world economy through the voices of the economic and social scene’s leaders, who will answer the following questions:

  • Social distancing, intermittent lockdowns, and telecommuting: this is the new normal life we are going to live because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are going to work from home, to be more and more online, to change the way we interact with others. Are our economical and social structures ready to handle this fallout?
  • COVID-19 has also sped up the transition to a fully digital world. We are at the forefront of a deep transformation in the way in which humankind lives and interacts. Are we ready for this new reality? Do you think we need to embrace or fight these changes?
  • "A crisis must never be missed: it is an opportunity to make any system a better system". What are you doing to reshape your own business, and make it better, to navigate this unprecedented time?
  • Can you give us some examples of how your sector has been directly affected by the pandemic and what strategy did you use to mitigate the effects?
  • Based on the experience we are gaining in this situation, what do we need to do in your opinion in order to prevent, or mitigate, the next one?
