Read something a few years back that Russia might be there too.

Listing to an interesting discussion on BBC sounds.  Rethink:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p08gt1ry

The one I am half way through is about populations, and how China and Japan in particular are approaching a population shrink.

didn't realise I was part way through a 5 episode series.  Really good. Heard the last 2 and the first one now.

Starts with Musk claiming that in 20 years we can expect to be looking at worldwide population COLLAPSE

It then dissects it from there. Looking at the decisions women make, looking after the old, retirement, work life balance. 
... Make sure you live before you die.

I just subscribed. I know you mentioned it before, but I didn't see that I could just subscribe to the audio podcast.
