The fourth episode of Series 2 of the Comma Press Podcast, which this series is on the theme of FUTURES.
In this episode, guest host and co-editor of the Europa28 anthology, Sophie Hughes, is in conversation with contributors Kapka Kassabova and Janne Teller about Comma's recent anthology, Europa28: Writing by Women on the Future of Europe, a Hay Festival Project.
Recorded remotely via Zoom due to the COVID-19 lockdown in the UK, our three guest discussed writing about Europe amidst an ongoing refugee crisis, a global pandemic and in a nationalistic, post-Brexit world - what can we learn and take forward. They also discussed the impact and dangers of technological innovation, and what the world would be like without social media and 'bad news' culture.
