Introducing... Long Reads

October 31, 2020

Long Reads is a new, bi-weekly podcast looking in-depth at political topics and thinkers, both contemporary and historical, with the magazine’s longform writers. Hosted by Features Editor Daniel Finn. Over the coming weeks, you’ll hear about topics ranging from the Korean War to the Arab uprisings, and about thinkers like Albert Camus and Erich Fromm.

Our guest today for a discussion on the politics of climate change is Adrienne Buller. Adrienne is a senior research fellow at Commonwealth, the British progressive think tank, where her work focuses on the link between finance and the climate crisis.

Buller's articles:
