Adam Curtis : an audio special

On Facebook, The Big Lump Theory ... and Popbitch Radio

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Beeb Week Earlier in the week, we published a long interview with the BBC's Adam Curtis. From your feedback you enjoyed it very much. Mark Woodward wrote -

"Sometimes you come across something so electric you can feel the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, and like The Trap, that's how Adam Curtis's remarks here hit me. Its the sense of someone drawing together a set of threads that you could instinctively feel but not place together in a pattern, and that really is Curtis's genius."

"Adam Curtis for beeb controller!" writes Alan Parsons.

That was recorded a few months ago, but Adam kindly agreed to a follow up this month: and here are a few audio snippets.

The quality isn't as atrocious as the earlier interview - it's mostly audible. We've saved the best 'til last.

So, enjoy:
