The Zeitgeist Tapes is a new podcast brought to you by Steven Fielding, Professor of Politcal History at Nottingham University and freelance journalist and communications expert Emma Burnell. SUBSCRIBE HERE.
We believe that pop culture has a great deal to say on both power and politics. From the way the soaps address issues of the day, to the way politics is framed through shows like the West Wing and the Thick of It, understanding the interplay of culture and politics is essential to understanding both.
Each month we will discuss timely pieces of art, theatre, film, television and music, the impact they have had on politics and the impact politics has on our present cultural scene. We will also do a deep dive into a particular piece of culture relevant to the political moment.
