We are launching a new podcast ‘Reading Our Times’ exploring the books and the ideas that are shaping us today. 10/09/2020
Reading Our Times is the podcast that explores the books and the ideas that are shaping us today. It is hosted by Nick Spencer, Senior Fellow at Theos.
We’re going to be talking to some of the world’s leading authors about issues like meritocracy, justice, populism, human rights, the brain, liberalism, and religion.
Above all, we’ll be exploring what these books have to say about the times we live in and about the people we are.
So listen with us, and we’ll introduce you to authors, books and ideas that illuminate ourselves and our world today.
Our first episode is ‘What’s wrong with meritocracy?’ in conversation with leading philosopher Michael Sandel. Listen here.
Follow us on Twitter @theosthinktank and @theosnick.
