Ed King left school concerned about opportunities in the UK and worked teaching English in China and Kazakhstan in Asia and Slovakia in Eastern Europe. Teaching in China begins at 7:15 every day and ends at 10pm but he and his fellow teachers were even denied exercise books to aid children's learning. Schools were six-day a week compulsory factory-like institutions in horribly polluted cities like Henan. Kazakhstan was bleak but a better teaching environment. Ed was approached at the UK airport by someone he believed was hinting that he might make a good spy for the British intelligence service out in Asia.

David Saunders is an all round green activist in Bristol who's been part of the Extinction Rebellion (XR) phenomenon, but he has much wider interests, like understanding change and avoiding ways of working which act against the social good. He moves in circles where the various crises, climate, finance and war, facing humanity are thought through and strategised about to warn and avert crises before it's too late.
