About Endgame

Introducing Endgame, a podcast by the School of Government and Public Policy Indonesia, co-produced by Visinema Pictures.

Join entreprenuer, educator, and proud Indonesian, Gita Wirjawan in exploring the ways forward for our society through stories and experiences by thought leaders, trailblazers, and opinion-makers from Indonesia and the region.

The show is about planting the seeds of determination in our young leaders as they face fearful odds. With rising global challenges, we want to remind them--and ourserlves--that whatever situation we find ourselves in, we can emerge from it stronger, and there is something bigger waiting beyond the horizon (the endgame).

  3. Carefully-curated guest with breadth. ** We invite the best (sometimes unheard-of) minds with deep understanding of the problem and the ability to connect on a personal level through unique life stories.
