Adam talks with British writer Philip Pullman at his home in Oxford about The Secret Commonwealth, the second part of his Book Of Dust trilogy, as well as the morality of science and progress, the danger of conspiracy theories, the loss innocence, the value of music and poetry, writing, cultural appropriation and getting into trouble on social media (though this was recorded before he got into trouble on social media for Tweeting a joke about Boris Johnson).

A note about Comments
Hello Podcats and Blog friends,
I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.
