Adam talks with British writer Philip Pullman at his home in Oxford about The Secret Commonwealth, the second part of his Book Of Dust trilogy, as well as the morality of science and progress, the danger of conspiracy theories, the loss innocence, the value of music and poetry, writing, cultural appropriation and getting into trouble on social media (though this was recorded before he got into trouble on social media for Tweeting a joke about Boris Johnson).
