book suggestions? 

I have a podcast (in swedish) called Läsarpodden. In each episode we discuss one book, and now were looking for books for our next season. Especially looking for books on the following themes: Climate Change politics, China (its growing role in the world, but also it cultural distinctiveness), psychology. Any suggestions? I can be popular och more academic, but it has to be challenging and exciting. Especially looking for non-white-male writers...

Watership down 2018, spoilers 

Really annoyed with how they changed Cowslip's Warren. In the book that episode is the most piercing commentary on western upper middle class culture. In the miniseries they have turned it into some boring New Age cult... Haven't seen the whole thing yet, but this makes me wonder if the makers of the miniseries have understood the book at all... 🤨

Late stage capitalism

Where 2 designers put their very creative minds together create this "scented block".

Most important current thinker? 

Who do you think is the most important creative thinker in the world today? Someone who really helps us understand our current situation?

I'd nominate David Graeber, the anthropologist. Each of his books just brings together ideas and observations in such creative ways. He is also really fun to read.
