Presented and edited by two UCL (University College London) graduates, Cassidy and Cerys, hear about research #MadeAtUCL on the costs of freedom.
In this episode we’re exploring the value of freedom, from the people who found it in the bleakest of circumstances to the ways in which we restrict our own freedom (and the freedom of others) without even realising it. Professor Virginia Mantouvalou shares her work on labour laws and explains how our legal system is creating situations that exploit vulnerable people. Dr Sarah J Young describes the experiences of Russian prisoners at Shlissel’burg and the memoirs she used to write her new book. And Dr Saheli Datta Burton tells us why we should be sceptical about our smart gadgets.
