RHLSTP #261: Capitalism in Space - Richard is at the Oxford Playhouse and unsettled by the fact that it's 30 years since he left University and appeared on this stage in Month in the Country. His guest is environmental campaigner and journalist George Monbiot. Is the world screwed? Or can we save it if we all pull together? Why did George deliberately get arrested? Can Extinction Rebellion make a difference? And how can we reform our electoral system? Plus how wolves can change the course of rivers, fortune tellers correctly predicting George's death (almost), being stung by massive hornets and how Thatcher smashed the BBC. An illuminating and terrifying interview.
