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.
How did the cult of the knowledge worker become so pervasive? Host, Ross Ashcroft met up with author, David Goodhart, to discuss.
