The Prospect Podcast #84: Hay Festival special, with Steven Pinker, Elif Shafak and the Roundhouse Poetry Collective
Prospect’s editors went up to Hay-on-Wye last week for the annual Hay Festival of Literature & Arts. We joined Steven Pinker, Elif Shafak and poets from London’s Roundhouse Poetry Collective to talk about what they’re reading right now, and the biggest problems facing the world today.
Plus: Sameer Rahim and Stephanie Boland on the literary festival circuit and how a writer’s job today often extends beyond writing.
