[031] Social Science Talks: 1984, by George Orwell

"‘It was a bright cold morning in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen…’ After much pressure, and the election of Donald Trump, we finally get round to covering 1984 by George Orwell. How does the book hold up today? Do we use the word Orwellian too much? And is there something distinctively English about Orwell’s writing? It’s a book that has come up a lot recently, so join us as we desperately try to stay on topic and fail miserably."
