196. GO BIG #3: A Big Idea to Repair Our Democracy

Hello! It’s the third episode of our podcast book tour, exploring ideas from Ed’s new book ‘Go Big’. We're revisiting citizens’ assemblies and the role they could play in repairing our democracy. Experts Graham Smith, Archon Fung and Becky Willis talk us through what citizens’ assemblies are, where they’re being used, and how they fit into the wider need for participation and deliberation in politics.


Plus Mike Tipton answers all of Ed’s questions on cold water swimming!


‘Go Big’ is out now in hardback, ebook and audiobook, narrated by Ed and with a bonus conversation between Ed and Geoff: https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/1119347/go-big/9781847926241.html
