New Generation Thinkers 2022

New Generation Thinkers is a scheme run by Wiki60s Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to turn research into radio. There's a playlist featuring insights from the 120.

From Shakespearian writing and Tudor sound to the power of song, ideas about stupidity to sea monsters and the soil - the ten academics working at UK universities who have been chosen to share their research on radio give us insights into a range of subjects. Laurence Scott - one of the first New Generation Thinkers back in 2010 is the host.
