Listen to lively discussions between Hurst authors, journalists and leading experts as they interrogate the stories behind thought-provoking books.

In our new season, you’ll hear about how Pentecostal Christianity is taking over the world; the rise and fall of the Sikh empire; a hundred years of British political nightmares; whether any war in history has gone to plan; a vivid, powerful account of the Rohingya in exile; and how ordinary Ukrainians saved their nation.
