Free Thinking

My appearances for Radio 3 Free Thinking are now available to download from the BBC website.

Ahead of the re-release of Peter Watkins’ 1974 biography of the artist Edvard Munch, I looked at how Munch’s biography relates to his art (and why Strindberg threatened to kill him). You can hear my thoughts here, or alternatively the full programme with a further discussion about biography is available here.

The New Generation 2016 launch at the Hay Festival is also available, with subjects ranging from the history of the hairdresser to what aubergines have to do with the Spanish Inquisition.

I will be speaking next at the South Bank Centre at 3pm on the 24th September, talking about Strindberg and Swedish history. The event is free but ticketed, with further information available here.
