    The Unnamable Present with Roberto Calasso

    We all know we’re modern, but how many of us can say why? Dominic Green's guest on 'The Green Room' this week, Italian writer Roberto Calasso, is a peerless explorer of what he calls the modern 'revolution in the human brain’, and of the ghostly endurance of the old gods. His latest book, The Unnamable Present (https://www.wsj.com/articles/roberto-calassos-the-unnamable-present-review-sacrifices-at-modernitys-altar-11557522189) , is the ninth in a kaleidoscopic series.

    Art Tavana on 'cancel culture'

    Art Tavana on 'cancel culture'

    On this week’s Green Room podcast, Art Tavana and Dominic Green discuss the making and unmaking of Laura Loomer, a 25 year old video journalist who made unsavory comments about Islam, and what her modern morality tale says about media, politics and the way we live. Tavana feels that Loomer’s sanity and safety are in the balance, in part because she cannot escape her notoriety, but Loomer insists that she is going nowhere: 'I’m here forever. I’m here to stay.’

    Anarchy and Empire with Robert Kaplan

    Anarchy and Empire with Robert Kaplan

    In this fascinating podcast, Dominic Green talks to author and foreign policy analyst Robert Kaplan. They look back at ‘The Coming Anarchy’ after a quarter of a century, and trace the ambitions and disasters of the last three decades of American empire, from the early Nineties to the War on Terror and the retreat of the Obama and Trump years. If you listen carefully, you can hear the clink of coffee cups on saucer. If you listen even more carefully, you’ll hear a reminder of Kipling’s ‘Recessional’, with its warning that all empires must dissolve: ‘Lest we forget.’ Listen and learn.
