  3. The World Today With Tariq Ali - EU Eyesores: 1. Romania

    This week, The World Today makes a detour to Romania, a country on the Eastern-most limits of the EU’s border, and one that is rarely discussed outside of Eastern Europe.

    Tariq’s guest is Romanian political scientist Vladimir Bortun, a reader at Portsmouth University, who tells us about a huge government corruption scandal, the largest street protests since the end of Communism, and whether or not joining the EU has benefitted the country.

  4. The World Today With Tariq Ali - Democratic Socialism in the USA?

    Socialism has been a dirty word in the United States’ politics since time immemorial. However, a new generation of politicians and activists, emboldened by Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign, are willing to call themselves Democratic Socialists.

    Tariq spoke to one of these activists, Jeremy Gong, of the Democratic Socialists of America, who has been centrally involved in organising campaigns to get socialist candidates elected in California.

    A. D. Jameson is an author of both fiction and film criticism, as well as a teacher. He’s interested in narrative, realism, fantasy, geek culture, and experimental writing, and recently earned his PhD in the Program for Writers at the University of Illinois in Chicago.

Jameson shines a new light on beloved classics, explaining the enormous love (and hate) they’re capable of inspiring in fan and non-fan alike, while exploding misconceptions as to how and why they were made.

  6. Mark Zuckerberg: The Recode interview - Recode

    Everything was on the table — and after Facebook’s wildest year yet, that’s a really big table.

    Yesterday, I motored my Ford Fiesta down to Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., to interview CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg.

    I had not done a formal interview with Zuckerberg since he appeared at our D: All Things Digital conference in 2010, when the company was in its early days. Now, Zuckerberg was ensconced in a massive building with a garden on the roof, part of an even larger campus that sprawled all over and was still growing.

    Also growing? Increased scrutiny and criticism of the social network Zuckerberg had built into a behemoth.

    It’s well deserved given the sloppy way the company has handled a range of issues of late, including not monitoring how user data was abused by Cambridge Analytica, not stopping the Russians from manipulating the platform in the 2016 elections and allowing false news from suspect publishers like Infowars to be distributed on the platform.

    The controversies have landed Zuckerberg and Facebook in hearings here and in Europe and have tarnished his nerd-god image.

    In this 90-minute interview we talked about a range of things, from news to data to privacy to China to his political ambitions. As you will hear, Zuckerberg can cling closely to talking points, but he also did reveal more than he has about this annus horribilis for him and, well, the rest of us.

    While many are justifiably angry at him and at Facebook, I decided to not strafe the billionaire entrepreneur. I tried instead to engage him in a conversation about how he has mishandled his growing power and responsibility and what he planned to do about it.

    I think the interview gives a picture of an earnest and canny tech leader who is also grappling with the darker side of his creation. At one point, I asked him who was to blame and who should pay the price for the Cambridge Analytica controversy and he rightly named himself, as the person who invented Facebook. “Do you want me to fire myself on this podcast?” Zuckerberg joked. Spoiler alert: He did not.

    Unfortunately, we did not get to every topic. We did not touch on the important issues of diversity, tech addiction and other issues that I hope to get to discuss with him in our next interview.

  9. Marcus du Sautoy and James Bridle – books podcast

    On this week’s show, we’re exploring infinity and beyond with artist and writer James Bridle and mathematician Marcus du Sautoy.

    Through his visual art and writings on technology and culture, James Bridle has been at the forefront of our understanding of tech for the last decade – and from his perspective, the view of our future is both exciting and gloomy. He sat down with the Guardian’s technology reporter Alex Hern to talk about his book, New Dark Age.

    Limits are grist to the mill for Marcus du Sautoy, professor of public understanding of science at Oxford University. His mission is to explore – and if possible, explain – the unknown, so following hot on the heels of his bestselling book What We Cannot Know, is How to Count to Infinity. Meeting with Richard Lea at the Hay festival, Du Sautoy explained how a German mathematician first proved the existence of infinity in 1874, and what the concept means for our understanding of the universe.
