Laughter - Welcome

A little bit about the translator Cloudesley Brereton's wife: she was Maud Brereton. There's a photograph of her on the Cambridge University website, where she was briefly Principal of Homerton College. Between WWI and WWII she was a proponent of something akin to what we'd now call Universal Basic Income - arguing that unpaid unemployment was a stupid and inefficient way of organising things. Hats off. Anybody want to make a podcast about her? :)

Presented and produced by Eli Sessions.

Music from The Underscore Orkestra.
