Writers from our November issue on love and religion, Jeremy Corbyn and hillbilliesby Prospect Team / October 10, 2016 / Leave a comment
Lend us your ears for Headspace, the second edition of Prospect’s new monthly podcast—which today features Will Self debunking the “romance delusion.”
Each month we welcome into the pod three of the contributors from the magazine. We commission pieces which challenge you to think differently, and we encourage our writers to challenge each other, as they stress-test each other’s arguments in the studio. Joining Prospect’s new editor, Tom Clark, are three contributors from the November issue—the novelist, Will Self, who suggests that it is time for us all to come off the love drug; the author, Rachel Shabi, who discounts the great gloom that has settled on Labour MPs and insists that there is now real promise in the radical energy of the Corbynite left; and, Diane Roberts, a commentator for National Public Radio, who has been reading up on “hillbilly communities” and getting to the toots of rage that pulsate through the US election campaign.
