Wherever you locate yourself on that spectrum of tolerance. You too, have your limits. In the mid 1980s, a group of people in Oregon discovered their tipping point when a massive commune moved in next door. The Baghwan Shree Rajneesh and thousands of his followers decided to build a city in the middle of nowhere—a utopia on Earth. Only it was the middle of somewhere for the mostly white, mostly Christian residents of a tiny nearby town. It was home, and like most humans, they weren’t too excited about the idea of radical, unexpected change in their own backyard.

They go to war. The key is homeostasis—the imperative of all life to avoid harm and seek to flourish. I’m delighted to be speaking today with neuroscientist and philosopher Antonio Damasio. He heads the Brain and Creativity Institute at the University of Southern California and is the author of DESCARTES’ ERROR and the new book THE STRANGE ORDER OF THINGS: Life, Feeling, and the Making of Cultures. ” At the link find the title, “144.

Much of the evil we do, he argues, comes from mistaken ideas of religion and what we think God wants of us; the reality is that we need new ideas about our responsibilities to each other, and to listen better to that inner spirit we all have, the spirit of human rights.” At the link find the title, “Lecture 5 – The 2017 CBC Massey Lectures by Payam Akhavan, Mar, 2018,” right-click “Media files ideas-5nRZ2TQx-20180328.mp3” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Leukemia Treatment 27 mins – “Could a British medical trial herald a cure for the commonest type of blood cancer? BBC reporter Simon Cox has had Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia or CLL for more than a decade. Like him, many patients don’t have health problems for years. For those who do need treatment, options include chemotherapy or bone marrow transplants. CLL is a disease of the immune system – the lymphocyte cells which fight infections and then die, instead grow out of control and can’t be “switched off”. Simon Cox talks to Peter Hillmen, professor of experimental haematology at St James’ hospital in Leeds in northern England who’s on a mission to find a cure. He’s recruited 50 CLL patients – whose disease returned after chemotherapy – onto the Clarity trial. They are given two non-chemotherapy drugs – Venetoclax and Ibrutinib – to target elements of CLL – the proliferation of cells and their inability to die off. Andy Wright is on the trial. Initially 84% of his bone marrow cells contained CLL. After eight months that figure had fallen to just 0.0085%. A third of the trial patients have no trace of CLL – an unprecedented response which Professor Hillmen believes means a cure is now much closer.” At the link right-click “Download” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Neil Gaiman 57 mins – “Adult life, with all its schedules and responsibilities, can turn into a kind of library of locked boxes.

Maybe we’ve misplaced the keys, or maybe we’ve deliberately lost them. My guest today keeps all the keys close at hand. In his stories and graphic novels worlds collide and, as the fairy Ariel puts it in Shakespeare’s Tempest, they “suffer a sea change, into something rich and strange”.

Rooted Citizens vs World Citizens 62 mins – “When Theresa May uttered these words at the Tory party conference in 2016, there was uproar. May was targeting the liberal establishment, who flit business class from Mayfair to Monaco, from Davos to Doha; those in positions of power, who, as May put it, ‘behave as though they have more in common with international elites than with the people down the road’. But many people who don’t fit in this frequent flyer category felt under attack too. For this group, believing you are a citizen of the world is a badge of honour, not shame. The cosmopolitan impulse, they believe, isn’t about loyalty to any single community. On the contrary, you can be a citizen of your street, your city, your country and the entire globe. And in our interconnected world, those with a burning concern for global justice, for the environment, for the strife and carnage happening beyond our borders, see themselves as part of humanity at large – as citizens of the world. But for a different group of people, May’s words resonated deeply. These are the people who feel genuinely rooted in their communities, who feel the strongest sense of solidarity with those who share their history, language and other elements of a common culture. These people often feel sneered at as nationalists or worse, as bigots, by the elites who do not understand their profound intuition that the nation state is the natural expression of group identity. We were joined by Simon Schama, one of Britain’s most celebrated historians, who embodies the cosmopolitan spirit; Elif Shafak, the Turkish novelist and commentator, who calls herself a ‘world citizen and a global soul’; David Goodhart, author of the bestseller The Road To Somewhere; and David Landsman, a former diplomat now in the corporate world.

Ayesha and Keera share their experiences of living with and looking after a mother or father with conditions such as schizophrenia and severe depression. The number of young people who smoke is on the rise in sub-Saharan Africa while rate of take-up of the deadly habit by youth is falling in Europe and North America. Africa’s tobacco trend was a key issue of concern for experts at the recent World Conference on Tobacco or Health in Cape Town. Doctors dread the consequences for Africa’s young smokers as lung disease caused by tobacco will be exacerbated by the region’s high HIV and TB rates. One describes the situation as ‘a perfect storm’. Hannah McNeish reports from Cape Town. Claudia is also in South Africa, in rural Kwazulu Natal. She gets a tour of a medical clinic in a truck by Prof Deenan Pillay of the Africa Health Research Institute. It’s one of several which will be driving out into remote communities for a massive study of 50,000 people on the socio-economic and biological factors which influence fortunes of patients with HIV and/or TB. In this area of South Africa, 30% of population is infected with HIV and 30% of recorded deaths are down to TB. Family doctor Ann Robinson is Claudia’s studio guest talking about a massive new global study of lower back pain and evidence-based strategies to dissuade young people from starting smoking. Ann gives a brief backgrounder on Novichok nerve agents and discusses the suggested link between low sperm counts and ill health in men.” At the link right-click “Download” and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Social Networks 46 mins – “Every time he sees a triangle these days, my 10-year-old son points and says “Gasp! the illuminati!” This is a meme he and all his friends absorbed from YouTube. It’s interesting that several centuries after the Illuminati first appeared, as basically a idealistic secret boys’ club, followed by the Freemasons, these kinds of shadowy organizations still exert so much power on our imaginations. That’s because power doesn’t always come in the shape of Queens, Presidents, CEOs or Members of Parliament. Often it exists in the more or less invisible relationships between people. My guest today is renowned historian Niall Ferguson. His new book The Square and the Tower: Networks and Hierarchies, from the Freemasons to Facebook looks at the two ancient power structures that continue to move the world today.” At the link find the title, “135.

Stem Cells for Macular Degeneration 18 mins – “Professor Pete Coffey from UCL reacts to the recent US case, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, of three women who paid for stem cell treatment in a private clinic, in which cells from their own body fat were injected into their eyes and which left them all with virtually no vision. Prof Coffey explains the difference between the US and UK procedures.

Steven Hawking 47 mins – “Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has died at 76, leaving in his wake incredible contributions to science and countless inspired souls. The British scientist contributed to the sum of human knowledge about the universe’s greatest mysteries, from black holes to time travel and quantum mechanics. Hawking’s life was depicted in the 2014 film “The Theory of Everything,” and his own books, like “A Brief History Of Time,” popularized his subjects for a lay audience. On Point guest host Meghna Chakrabarti was joined by three people who knew Hawking as a scientist: Harvey Reall, a professor of theoretical physics at Cambridge University who worked with Hawking for more than 20 years, as well as Vijay Balasubramanian, professor of theoretical physics at the University of Pennsylvania, and Kitty Ferguson, the author of “Stephen Hawking: An Unfettered Mind.” “His contribution went way beyond science,” Ferguson, told us: He conveyed the fun of science….” At the link right-click the down-pointing arrow under the listen button and select “Save Link As” from the pop-up menu.

Stop Brexit 60 mins – “It’s time we came to to our senses. Brexit is a disaster and must be stopped. Leave campaigners promised our exit from the European Union would herald a glorious new era – the sunlit uplands of ‘global Britain’, with new trade deals signed in a matter of months and an extra £350 million per week for the NHS. But what do we have today? Sterling has collapsed, Boris has been busy bungling in Brussels, and the government’s own leaked economic assessments show that leaving the EU will harm every single region of the country, especially ‘left behind’ areas that voted to Leave. The public was misled, and as David Davis once said, ‘If a democracy cannot change its mind, it ceases to be a democracy’. Let’s end this madness and call the whole thing off. That’s the reasoning of the Remoaners. But can you imagine the damage we’d do to our politics if we overturned the democratic expression of 17 million people – the single biggest mandate in British history? If these sneering liberals had their way, the masses would be forced to vote in referendum after referendum until they gave the ‘correct’ answer. What part of ‘take back control’ don’t they understand? And spare us the whingeing over economic forecasts. We all remember Project Fear and the phoney establishment warnings that the sky would fall in once we voted to Leave. Is it time the public voted again on this defining issue of our times? Or should we embrace the opportunities presented by leaving the EU? Arguing in favour of the motion were Gina Miller, the businesswoman and campaigner who wasd the lead claimant in the successful legal fight to allow parliament to vote on whether the UK could start the process of leaving the EU; and Chuka Umunna, Labour MP for Streatham and a prominent pro-EU campaigner, who is now the leader of a coalition of cross-party groups representing 500,000 members pushing for a referendum on the final EU deal. Arguing against the motion were Gerard Lyons, one of the country’s leading economists and an expert on the global economy, and co-author of Clean Brexit: Why Leaving The EU Still Makes Sense; and Isabel Oakeshott, a pro-Brexit journalist and broadcaster who was political editor of The Sunday Times and authored The Bad Boys of Brexit, an inside account of Nigel Farage and Arron Banks’ Leave.EU campaign.

Tariffs and Trump 47 mins – “Over the past few months, President Trump has announced new tariffs on imported goods from solar panels and washing machines to steel and aluminum. He has also taken swift executive action to block international mergers that he has deemed harmful to U.S. interests from occurring, and has even said he would consider withdrawing from NAFTA and related trade agreements. President Trump’s protectionist policies are a reversal of mostly free-trade orientated policies of past administrations, and his actions raise important constitutional questions about the extent of executive power over trade policy, separation of powers and the non-delegation doctrine, as well as the future of U.S. and global trade. Timothy Meyer is a Professor of Law at Vanderbilt Law School. He is an expert in public international law, with an emphasis on international economic and energy law.

Tocqueville in America 49 mins – “Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) and his examination of the American democratic system. He wrote De La Démocratie en Amérique in two parts, published in 1835 and 1840, when France was ruled by the July Monarchy of Louis-Philippe. Tocqueville was interested in how aspects of American democracy, in the age of President Andrew Jackson, could be applied to Europe as it moved away from rule by monarchs and aristocrats. His work has been revisited by politicians ever since, particularly in America, with its analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of direct democracy and its warnings of mediocrity and the tyranny of the majority.

Transportation System Revolution 58 mins – “A transport revolution in our cities is under way. Ride-sharing schemes, driverless cars and electric vehicles look set to bring us all kinds of benefits, such as lower pollution, faster flowing traffic and fewer accidents. But these benefits won’t just fall into our laps. What will we have to do to ensure that we reap the rewards of these changes and avoid potential pitfalls? Will technological change bring us closer together as a society or drive us further apart? Will we the consumers be the ones who make the all-important decisions, or will we be at the mercy of the tech and car companies and the policy-makers? And will these decisions actually result in a lower carbon future? There’s a lot of excitement about the future of cars: will people be prepared to give up the independence of the privately owned vehicle and use hailing schemes? Given that a total switchover to electric vehicles is unlikely to happen within the next ten years, how will a mix of vehicles on our streets affect the way we live? And is all this talk about cars a distraction from much needed investment in public transport? We were joined by author, journalist and Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media, Jamie Bartlett; Uber’s Head of Cities in the UK and Ireland, Fred Jones; creative technologist at the open innovation consultancy company Five by Five, Eugena Ossi; and journalist, author, and railway historian, Christian Wolmar.

Travel Ban Discussion 44 mins – “On Wednesday, April 25, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in one of the biggest cases of the year: Trump v. Hawaii, the challenge to the latest iteration of President Donald Trump’s efforts to restrict travel to the United States by nationals from certain countries. The federal government contends that a ruling for the challengers would “hamstring” the president’s ability to conduct foreign relations and protect the national security; the challengers counter that allowing the so-called “travel ban” to stand will not only preclude over 150 million people, overwhelmingly Muslim, from coming to the United States, but it will also consolidate “breathtakingly vast” power in the executive branch. Josh Blackman is an Associate Professor of Law at the South Texas College of Law Houston. He blogs at JoshBlackman.com and has written dozens of blog posts, editorials, and articles on the Trump v. Hawaii case. Joshua Matz is of counsel at Gupta Wessler PLLC and Kaplan & Company LLP. He is the publisher of the Take Care blog.

Tribalism 48 mins – “I don’t know about you, but for me, middle school was horrible. I arrived at an all-male school in a still very homophobic era as a small, nervous, Michael Jackson fanatic. Don’t worry – I’m going somewhere with this. For three years, life was hell. Then I found my tribe—the drama nerds. Maybe we couldn’t beat you up, but you had to respect the artistry. In high school, Tribalism was power. My guest today is Yale Law professor Amy Chua, who shook the Internet up a few years back with her book BATTLE HYMN OF THE TIGER MOTHER. What upset some progressive American parents most, it seems, was the suggestion that they were members of a parenting tribe. A cultural bubble with its own fallible set of assumptions. In her powerful new book POLITICAL TRIBES: GROUP INSTINCT AND THE FATE OF NATIONS, Amy points out that long past high school, group instinct is much stronger than Americans generally like to admit. And that this cognitive blind spot has led to our repeatedly shooting ourselves in the foot, at home and abroad.” At the link find the title, “137.

Union Fees Case 52 mins – “Alicia Hickok and Eugene Volokh join National Constitution Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen to discuss a major Supreme Court case about public-union dues. The Supreme Court is considering arguments in a case that could have a huge effect on public-section unions and their membership. The case of Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) will be heard on February 26 at the Court. The question in front of the nine Justices is if public-sector “agency shop” arrangements — payments that workers represented by a union must pay even if they are not dues-paying members — should be invalidated under the First Amendment. The Supreme Court said in Abood v. Detroit Board of Education (1977) that government employees who don’t belong to a union can be required to pay for union contract negotiating costs that benefit to all public employees, including non-union members. The Abood decision has been challenged in court several times, and an evenly divided Court couldn’t decide a similar case, Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, in 2016. This time, a full Court will consider the issue. Alicia Hickok is a Partner at the law firm Drinker Biddle and a Lecturer in law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

Vegetative Patients 58 mins – “We’ve usually thought that people in comas or ‘vegetative’ states are completely cut off from the world.

Jeremy Bailenson, my guest today, has been experimenting with cutting edge virtual reality for over a decade now.
