To be a catalyst is the ambition most appropriate for those who see the world as being in constant change, and who, without thinking that they control it, wish to influence its direction - Theodore Zeldin

Halcyon Listened - 2013

During November 2013, we listened to and would recommend the following podcasts:

  • Start the Week explored the future of human rights with campaigner Bianca Jagger and academic Stephen Hopgood. Jagger pointed to the failure of the global community to tackle violence against women and girls, while Hopgood sounded the death knell for international Human Rights with the rise of religious conservatism and the decline in influence of Europe and America.
  • The Infinite Money Cage discussed the science of risk. Professor Brian Cox and comedian Robin Ince, together with guests David Spiegelhalter, Sue Ion and former Goodie, Graeme Garden, explored such questions as: why is seven the safest age to be, how safe is nuclear power and how worried should we be by the threat of asteroid impact?
  • In No Power Without Accountability, songwriter, activist and campaigner Billy Bragg discussed the nature of democracy, citizenship, power and responsibility.He argued that those in power must not only be held to account; they must also re-engage the electorate in participatory democracy.
