The MONOCLE Weekly
For the first anniversary show of the Monocle Weekly, the team welcome music legend David Byrne to the studio to hear his latest concept album, "Here Lies Love". Also around the table is Penny Martin, editor in chief of The Gentlewoman, the newest fashion title to hit international newsstands, and André Balazs, America's most innovative hotelier and property developer. We also put a call in to Dr Bates Gill, director of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), ahead of this week's meeting of Arctic coastal states in Quebec.
