#18 Nick Hubble - Science fiction, mass observation & the welfare state

May 28, 2020

Our guest on this episode is Dr Nick Hubble who is a seasoned English and Literature academic and researcher from Brunel University London. Nick joined us to talk about some of the research and books he has written over the years – including “Growing old with the welfare state”. As you all know, the elderly have featured heavily in the news with regards to vulnerability in recent times. I wanted Nick’s take on this issue as well as other topics that
he has a keen interest on like science fiction writing and mass observation.

I certainly had fun talking to Nick about these topics that he is passionate about and I’m sure you’ll enjoy this episode too.
