The first place many of us go answers about any given subject is Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia that is curated by volunteers and open to all. Today, Wikipedia turns 20.  Jimmy Wales is co-founder of Wikipedia. He's this week's guest on the podcast The Economist Asks, brought to us by our partners at Economist Radio. Its host, Anne McElvoy, joins us from London.
