This week on The Sifted Podcast, Eleanor is joined by Startup Life writer Anisah Osman Britton. They're discussing German digital bank Nuri filing for insolvency, Elon Musk stumping up $80m to fund carbon removal and the ordinary people still investing in Klarna.

We also talk to reporter Freya Pratty about the latest with Pollen, the events company that has entered administration after months of missed payrolls and unpaid customer refunds.

Finally, Sifted Podcast producer Tim Smith joins to talk about Starlab, the moonshot factory that saw 100 scientists running wild in a Belgian castle and has now been reborn in the hills above Barcelona.
