N1 9DX.

With Nathalie Olah and Vicky Spratt.

Join journalists Nathalie Olah and Vicky Spratt to discuss the current state of today's arts, media and cultural industries, at a time when a radical cultural response to our political moment is needed more than ever. Steal as Much as You Can is the story of how a generation that was lost for most of the 2010s – mired in debt, stressed by precarious work, prisoners to capitalist realism –came back at the end of the decade to kick against the privileged minority. If the early 2010s was the era of Nick Clegg and Mumford and Sons, the late 2010s is the moment of Corbyn, Stormzy and Cardi B: icons of a positive populism that holds little regard to establishment notions of taste and respectability.
