Our podcast, 'How Did I Get Here?', is an opportunity to be introduced to economists and professionals across the field, at different career stages and in different areas. In this episode, we meet Helen Hughson, a Research Officer at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) since August 2019, and before that, Economist at the Reserve Bank of Australia for five years.

Suitable for students, teachers and those working in (or just interested in!) the field.
How can the resource be used?
Listen at your leisure on the bus, while you tidy your room or while you work.
How does the resource link to the curriculum?
Helen has worked on tax policy, the labour market and international developments, and co-authored working papers on household rsponses to monetary policy and the market for overnight cash in Australia.
