Another episode of Unsound Methods and this week we spoke to novelist and essayist, Joanna Kavenna.

We talked about false starts, finding a narrative voice in fiction as well as researching a novel in the Arctic circle and dealing with Polar Bears.

We also discussed how literature can help us understand and limit technology before the machines destroy us and why we all need to take a more Wittgensteinian view of reality.
