The Geek Manifesto on Start the Week

This morning, I took part in Start the Week on BBC Radio 4 — a wide-ranging discussion about science, evidence and politics pegged to the Geek Manifesto.

You can listen to the programme here.

The other guests were Professor David Nutt, who also has an excellent book out about the evidence on drug use, David Blunkett, who took a very thoughtful approach, and Jill Rutter, a former civil servant who is now programme director of the Institute for Government.
