About This Show
Each month editor Tom Clark welcomes to the programme three contributors from Prospect magazine. We commission pieces which challenge you to think differently, and we’ll also be encouraging our writers to challenge each other, as they stress-test each other’s arguments in the studio.

Headspace #18—Web of control
2 days ago
Not so long ago the web was on the quirky edges of life, but today it is at its heart. John Naughton started out as an enthusiast, but today he joins Tom Clark to explain why it has fallen prey to corporate capture and bred a new surveillance capitalism. James Ball explains how social media has been used to brainwash voters. Meanwhile, Samira Shackle comes back from a trip to Mosul, the Iraqi city until recently under IS control, and explains how blameless citizens there are today paying the price for having been unwilling appendages to the jihaddi killing machine.
