Jamie puts questions to a variety of researchers from top UK universities. Each episode will feature a different academic and a discussion about their specialist work. If you want to take a deep dive into history, politics, arts, culture, religion, theology, philosophy, sociology, anthropology and lots more - this is the podcast for you. If you are interested in learning more about the topics discussed, keep listening until the end of the episode when our researcher recommends books or materials for further reading.
