SIM Ep 410 Pod 122: Freedom of speech, Black British history, and a final disaster
As kids return to schools, Lavinya Stennett of The Black Curriculum tells Mick why Black British history needs to be mandatory teaching within the national curriculum and chats about the #TBH365 campaign aiming to make that a reality. Hannah talks to award-winning novelist Elif Shafak about her new non-fiction book, How To Stay Sane In An Age of Division, and why we should all spend a bit more time engaging with people we don't agree with.
There’s back-to-school confusion, hat drama and tail-eating snakes in the Bush Telegraph. And it's fishing – shit yeah! – in the final Dunleavy Does Disaster as we watch The Perfect Storm. Cue montage.
