    Chapter 82 : Richard Bradford

    Chapter 82 : Richard Bradford

    This week, Iain is joined by Richard Bradford to talk about "Orwell: A Man of Our Time".

    As one of the most enduringly popular and controversial novelists of the last century, the 70th anniversary of George Orwell's death in 2020 will certainly be marked by conferences, festivals and media events - but more significant than these acts of commemoration is his relevance today.

Madness of Crowds

Conversations with Douglas Murray are always enlightening and interesting. I am going to read the book.

WARNING: Addictive and expensive!

After listening to Anita Anand describe her book on this podcast I ordered it. I enjoyed the podcast so much I decided to listen other episodes, and the next one was Damian Barr discussing ‘You will be safe here’. I want to listen to some other episodes but the first two have cost me $37.98.
