Science and Technology • 55m
Tony Blair, Julie McDowall the 'Atomic Hobo', Prof Mary Fulbrook, SAS veterans, Stephen Fry, Akala.... It has been a bumper year on the pod. We've heard why the British Army was doomed to failure in Helmand, what it was like arriving at Bletchley Park in the darkest days of the Second World War, why the 'cleverest man in Britain' doesn't think much of Magna Carta, what it was like when Hiroshima was destroyed,and why women had better sex under Communism. In case you were unlucky enough to miss any of these episodes: here is a year end mash up. Thanks for all your support in 2019. We'll do our best to ensure that 2020's conversations are even better.
