Paul Adamson in conversation

By Paul Adamson

Hi. I’m Paul Adamson, the founder of Encompass, an online magazine about the European Union and its place in the world and, through also our podcasts and live events, a space for discussion and debate. These podcasts are me “in conversation with” personalities that I think have interesting things to say.
