BBC Radio Four Thought
The latest in a series of thought-provoking talks in which the speakers air their thinking on the trends, ideas, interests and passions that affect culture and society.
Four speakers tackle a curious range of subjects with remarkable results: Richard Gillis on the leadership myth; Andrea Cooper on how football can change the world; Jay Owens discussing dust and Josie Appleton talking about civility.
Richard Gillis is an award-winning writer and journalist, focusing on sport and business. He recently published ‘The Captain Myth.'
Andrea Cooper is the Head of the Liverpool FC Foundation, the charitable arm of Liverpool Football Club.
Josie Appleton is convener of the Manifesto Club, a civil liberties group that campaigns against vetting, booze bans, photo bans, and other forms of state hyper-regulation of everyday life.
Jay Owens is a cultural geographer and author of the email newsletter Disturbances.
