October 2013: BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival, The Sage, Gateshead. Myself and my fellow New Generation Thinkers joined the BBC Radio 3 team at The Sage, a fantastic venue in Gateshead, for the 2013 BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival of arts and ideas. It was a busy, exhilarating weekend, during which I delivered my essay on SF and reproduction, contributed to a discussion on Zamyatin’s dark dystopia We and had a go at intellectual speed dating! The first two activities were recorded live and broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in the weeks following the festival. Check out my Radio page for links. And a big thank you to the Gateshead public who were enthusiastic, complimentary and full of intelligent and thought-provoking questions and ideas.
