128 | Martha Nussbaum

A break from Brexit! This week we talk to one of the world's leading moral philosophers Martha Nussbaum about the really big stuff: anger and disgust, trust and hope, childhood and experience.  Can contemporary democracy cope with the growing fears of its citizens?  What are we so afraid of?  And what does Trump's election tell us about where we should look to rebuild faith in politics?  Martha Nussbaum's latest book is The Monarchy of Fear https://bit.ly/2zwpLR9
