    For two thousand years Pride has stood at the very top of the list of the Seven Deadly Sins. Perhaps no longer. Perhaps a new sin is rising to replace it.

    S2 EP3 - Greed

    Avarice, or Greed as we would call it today, now there’s a proper vice, one we can all surely identify with, claim and confess to. One of the defining quotations of the materialistic 1980s came from the fictional character Gordon Gecko, the junk bond pirate played by Michael Douglas in the Oliver Stone film, Wall Street. “Greed,” he tells a dinner of fellow financiers, “for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works”. It’s easy to dismiss this. Your instinct might be to shake your head sadly, or scoff angrily. Yet...

A must-listen!

As a long devotee of Stephen Fry I had to give this a try, so glad I did. Each episode is exquisitely researched, presented, and of course, narrated. I would listen to Stephen Fry read the back of a paint can honestly... All that aside this is a rich and fun podcast, timely and also timeless. Please never stop podcasting Stephen! 😍

Mr Fry is this century’s treasure

This podcast is what we all need: an education, logic, curiosity, humor and humanity.
Add to that the-only-Steven-Fry-can-do format and performance and you’ll get an absolute perfection and pleasure!
