Talking Politics


Democracy might be failing, populism is on the rise and it’s cool to be ‘woke’. In febrile and tumultuous political times, the “spellbindingly interesting” (The Times) Talking Politics was launched to try and make sense of what the hell is going on. Hosted by David Runciman and featuring a regular panel of the best political brains, 'Talking Politics' takes a uniquely long view of world events, using expertise in economics, politics and technology. The podcast also features interviews with big names like: Thomas Picketty, Yuval Noah Harari, Mary Beard, Pankaj Mishra and Jill Lepore on subjects from AI, and redistributive economics to feminism and the rise of Modi and Trump.
