The Libreria Podcast

In this episode Libreria welcomes Turkish writer and political thinker Ece Temelkuran, whose recent publications Together: A Manifesto Against a Heartless World and How To Lose A Country: The 7 Steps From Democracy to Dictatorship focus on fascism, rising populism, and morals in the 21st century.

In this discussion, Ece and Lloyd talk about witnessing political changes, her desire to tell the global story of the rise in populism, and the choices we can make together to overcome these challenges.

What is The Libreria Podcast?

Libreria, a bookshop by Second Home, is an independent bookshop in Shoreditch, London. We help you discover new books and ideas to encourage interdisciplinary thinking. In the shop, we curate our books to maximise serendipity – our shelves are arranged according to broad themes like 'Wanderlust', ‘Enchantment for Disenchanted’ and ‘The City’, so you’re constantly encountering titles you might not have come across otherwise.

In this podcast, Libreria does the same for your ears – interviewing interesting writers and thinkers to discover their influences and ideas.
