The Vintage Podcast with Yanis Varoufakis

"The people of Britain chose Brexit - they did not choose which Brexit."

Yanis Varoufakis, author most recently of Adults in the Room: My Battle with Europe’s Deep Establishment, was intricately involved in the highest levels of negotiations pertaining to Greece’s position within the EU. Now he campaigns globally for an international progressive alliance.

Varoufakis talks with us about the stark choices he faced before, during, and after his tenure as finance minister. Was he willing to become an EU insider or would he remain an outsider? How best to negotiate with technocrats insistent on mutually disadvantageous deals? What will Britain’s future look like after Brexit? And what can we do as citizens to slow the global slide into xenophobia, racism, and hopelessness?
