The Rethinking Education Podcast

“Civilisation is in a race between education and catastrophe.” (HG Wells)

In this podcast, we take Wells at his word. Hosted by Dr James Mannion (UK), Rethinking Education features in-depth conversations with interesting people about how we might tweak the education system so as to avert catastrophe and transition to a more harmonious, peaceful, sustainable way of life.
