That's Class

The latest podcast from Laurie Taylor's Thinking Allowed programme, which I now some regular readers listen to regularly, features a discussion on class and social mobility in contemporary Britain. Contributors are Richard Reeves, Director of the think tank Demos; Danny Dorling professor of geography at Sheffield University; Dick Hobbs, sociologist at the London School of Economics; and our favourite Brummie (for this week, anyway) Lynsey Hanley, Guardian journalist and author of the very excellent Estates - an Intimate History, reviewed by Lisa here.

The previous podcast on Bourgeois marriage in Victorian England passed me by. I'm off to download it now.
