Welcome back for another series of the Royal Society of Edinburgh’s ‘Tea & Talk’ Podcast; a series of conversations with some of Scotland’s leading authorities on the impact of Covid-19, featuring Fellows of the RSE and members of their Post-Covid-19 Futures Commission.

In Episode 3, RSE Chief Executive Rebekah Widdowfield chats with Professor Sir Ian Boyd FRSE about using the learning from Covid-19 to enhance Scotland’s resilience to deal with large-scale disruptions and challenges of the future.

Sir Ian is currently a Professor in Biology at the University of St Andrews and from 2012 to 2019 he was Chief Scientific Adviser at the UK Government Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. He is also a member of the RSE’s Post-Covid-19 Futures Commission chairing the Building National Resilience Working Group. Who better to speak to us on this important issue?
