Wild Lives

This week, Thea Lenarduzzi and Lucy Dallas are joined by Michael Sherborne to consider a master of science fiction, H. G. Wells, whose life was a runaway spaceship… until it ran out of steam; Niki Segnit, the author of ‘The Flavour Thesaurus’, explores some of the world’s rarest and most endangered foods; plus how sustainable – ecologically and economically – is book selling?


‘The Young H. G. Wells: Changing the world’ by Claire Tomalin

‘The City of Dr Moreau’ by J. S. Barnes

‘Eating To Extinction: The world’s rarest foods and why we need to save them’ by Dan Saladino
