Welcome to the 30th episode of the podcast. Every tenth episode we make is special in that we talk to someone who is either of Estonian descent or is a big friend of Estonia who is contributing to the success of Estonia. If you haven’t listened to our previous special episode #10 with Jenik Radon or episode #20 with Steve Jürvetson, make sure to catch up on them.

My guest today is a British journalist Edward Lucas, who is widely known for his work as senior editor at The Economist. Mr. Lucas is an expert in energy, intelligence and cyber-security issues, he has covered Central and Eastern Europe for more than 20 years. He is also a senior vice-president at the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA).
