Way to go!

Tonight's Start the Week with Andrew Marr is just an excellent introduction to several very interesting areas.

"[G]uests include Harvard politics professor Michael Sandel, who gives this year's Reith Lectures on A New Citizenship, addressing the 'prospect for a new politics of the common good' [i.e. moving away from the monetisation of everything].

Plus novelist Giles Foden on his new book Turbulence [wrote The Last King of Scotland and is about WWII weather forecasting, prediction and randomness], the developmental psychologist Bruce Hood on why he thinks we all have a 'supersense', the propensity to believe in the supernatural [a credible alternative to Dawkins' without the demonisation of religion], and astronomer Carolin Crawford on the science and beauty of nebulae."
