Gerry and Andy discuss the new plans for Design Politics 2020 in the light of the coronavirus situation, a bumper crop of books in Andy's Book Corner for your reading now that you're stuck at home all day, a study in how Canadians go to the toilet, and Gerry gets out his guitar and sings... No, really.

Andy's Book Corner
Brit(ish): On Race, Identity and Belonging by Afua Hirsch
From Notes to Narrative: Writing Ethnographies That Everyone Can Read by Kristen Ghodsee, which is really a good book about writing in general. Great for design researchers. Hat tip to Chris Hayward for this recommendation.
Antisocial: Online Extremists, Techno-Utopians, and the Hijacking of the American Conversation by Andrew Marantz – well-written and depressing at the same time.
Unlearn: Let Go of Past Success to Achieve Extraordinary Results by Barry O’Reilly. Lots of great insights personal and organisational change. (Barry is, in fact, Irish – Andy got it wrong in the podcast).
Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know by Malcolm Gladwell.
Beyond The Prototype: A roadmap for navigating the fuzzy area between ideas and outcomes by Douglas Ferguson.
