Yeah, But It's Not As Simple As That
A restless spirit of inquiry powers this podcast from the bolshy team at VICE UK. Yeah, But It's Not As Simple As That addresses weird, hard questions, or sometimes the totally normal but very big questions we should be asking when scrambling our way through life. Like, is it sustainable to live in debt forever? Can you love someone when you don't love yourself? Should you quit your crappy job? The format varies, but generally these quandaries are mulled by VICE writers and special guests - former British press secretary Alastair Campbell, rapper MIA, artist Marina Abramovic - as well as everyday people who've lived the question's reality. With improving production values over the course of almost 20 episodes, this is both juicy and thoughtful, weekly.
