Guests: John Lanchester
In this episode of Meet the Renegades, we talk with writer John Lanchester.
We ask what mistakes have been made following the 2008 financial crisis and how could it have been avoided. We also discuss how to navigate many of the challenges society faces today.
John talks about the UK Snoopers’ Charter to the housing crisis and the social impacts on ordinary citizens when they can no longer afford to live in their capital city.
In 2012, he published the acclaimed novel Capital which has been adapted for television as a three part series on BBC One.
The catastrophe dubbed the Amazon Chernobyl is probably the world's worst oil related disaster on earth and yet few people have heard about it.
How do we free ourselves from the tyranny of wall-to-wall zoom calls and our so-called smart devices and become time rebels?
