Are humans really driven by desire for power, money, sex and comfort – or is something even deeper at play? Beneath greed, acquisitiveness, and even altruism and self-sacrifice is an even more fundamental motivation, says science writer Will Storr: the scramble for status. He tells Andrew Harrison about his new book The Status Game: On Social Position And How We Use It, and the hidden social systems that program us to perform acts of great benefit to our fellows, deeds of heroism… and some of the most infamous crimes in human history. “We're a tribal animal. And once we’ve connected with our tribe, the jostling for position begins.”“The brain’s basic rule is ‘connect with people and go for status’.”“Morality is just a way we play for status.”“Humans are at their worst when they’re deprived of status.”“Even people who complain about virtue signalling are virtue signalling themselves.”https://www.patreon.com/bunkercasthttps://www.hive.co.uk/Product/Will-Storr/The-Status-Game--On-Social-Position-and-How-We-Use-it/25325652 Presented and produced by Andrew Harrison.

COVID has transformed the way we work. But not everyone’s a winner, especially women, with many in jobs that make working from home is impossible, undertaking twice as much unpaid overtime, or being pushed back into the office at risk of potential pay cuts. So what can be done to support working women? Naomi Smith talks to Maya Jeyabraba and Rose Lasko-Skinner from DEMOS, who have just published Distanced Revolution, a report all about how COVID caused a revolution in home working - and what needs to happen next.“Lots of people were excited about the flexibility without recognising the risks of working from home.” - Rose Lasko-Skinner“Flexible working can help with levelling up. But that too needs a legislative framework.” - Rose Lasko-Skinner“Even before the pandemic, women were taking on the second shift at home.” - Maya JeyabrabaPresented by Naomi Smith.

As gas prices soar and energy providers go out of business, is Britain heading for another winter of discontent? Plus, how is the Republic of Ireland finding Brexit? Is there any sympathy for the UK in Brussels? Tony Connelly, Europe editor for Irish state broadcaster RTE, joins us to discuss. And are the French right to be angry about the new AUKUS alliance?“On gas providers the Government sounds like Lord Farquaad, ‘some of you may die”' - Marie Le Conte“Europe is worryingly dependent on Russian Gas, and that is all part of a big geopolitical game” - Tony Connelly“It doesn’t matter how political you are, if the pound in your pocket gets you less, people will be angry” - Marie Le Conte“The entire UK political system did not understand the gravity of leaving the single market” - Tony Connelly“There is little sympathy in Brussels and Dublin for this idea that the UK was bullied” - Tony ConnellyPresented by Alex Andreou with Marie Le Conte and Arthur Snell.

As Johnson and Truss head stateside, what will their New York trip mean for the UK’s environment strategy? Could AUKUS prove awkward at the international dinner table? And: why have so many people stopped wearing their COVID face coverings? Ros Taylor and Yasmeen Serhan chew on the new cabinet appointments, gas shortages, and the Great British Bake Off stars to watch. •  “A lot of Johnson's New York trip is about making COP26 a success.” - Yasmeen Serhan•  “The AUKUS is a direct challenge to China, but it seems to have angered the French the most.” – Yasmeen Serhan•  “Wearing masks is such a small thing that we can all do to cut transmission.” - Yasmeen Serhan Presented by Ros Taylor and Yasmeen Serhan.

Nuclear anxiety was an everyday emotion in the 1980s, sparking atomic pop culture and peace camps across the world. September 2021 marks 40 years since the RAF Greenham Common protests, when a handful of Welsh women left their homes to march against the arrival of US nuclear warheads at the base in Berkshire. Professor Jane Holgate and Stephanie Davies, author of Other Girls Like Me, are both former Greenham women. They tell Ros Taylor about their time at the camp, why Greenham was a vital space for women, and what’s next for the anti-nuclear movement.  “We came for the peace, and we stayed for the feminism.” - Stephanie Davies“You could break UK law to prevent a greater crime. I was trying to protest apartheid in another country,” - Stephanie Davies“Horrible, smelly lesbians was a phrase used against Greenham women.” - Jane Holgate“People supported the peace movement and getting rid of the missiles. But as women, we were seen as part of the threat.” - Stephanie Davies“A lot of women left the camp because they feared losing custody of their children.” - Jane HolgatePresented by Ros Taylor.

If Apple Inc. was an economy, it would be the eighth largest in the world. But facing huge lawsuits across the world, it is finally starting to encounter the weight of its success. Has the company abused its market monopoly position in tightening its technological grip? Alex Andreou talks to Brooke Masters, Chief Business Correspondent at the FT, and Reuters Tokyo’s Tim Kelly about big tech battles in India, Japan, and South Korea…and why Epic has merely taken a byte out of the Apple Store.“Apple generally has a principle that whatever it does applies globally.” - Brooke Masters“The revenue from Apple's App Store is a huge source of revenue for the company.” - Brooke Masters“Technology has moved on, but the law hasn't moved as fast.” - Tim Kelly“Apple's business model is to keep people in their universe and buying stuff.” - Brooke Masters“If Apple is the subject of anti-trust action, then what does that mean for Google?” - Tim KellyPresented by Alex Andreou.

Parties are the engines of democratic politics. But they also pit us apart as people and polities. So what are the new ways of political polarization, and what can we do to tackle them? Alison Goldsworthy, CEO of the Depolarization Project and former Lib Dem deputy chair, and behavioural scientist Alexandra Chesterfield are two of the authors of Poles Apart and the brains behind the Changed My Mind podcast. They talk to Ros Taylor about deconstructing confirmation bias, why facts and stats can cause unintentional polarization - and how Jewish family dinners helped deradicalize a member of the KKK…“Polarisation isn't always about the extremes. It's about how radically you hold on to your identity.” - Alison Goldsworthy.“It makes us feel psychologically uncomfortable, even pained, to change our minds.” – Alexandra Chesterfield.“Reputationally, it doesn't fit the perception of a leader to be inconsistent.” – Alexandra Chesterfield.“In this government, people are promoted on the basis of loyalty, not talent.” - Alison Goldsworthy.“The odds are that you change your opinions based on feelings and allegiances, not facts.” - Alison Goldsworthy.“There's an awful lot you can hold Nick Clegg and the coalition government responsible for. The decision to hold a referendum is not one of them.” - Alison Goldsworthy.“We saw a member of the KKK, exposed to so-called scientific education, changed his mind.” – Alexandra Chesterfield.Presented by Ros Taylor.

As we brace ourselves for “permanent” shop shortages and price hikes, we hear from lorry driver and transport expert Tom Reddy and Food and Drink Scotland’s James Withers on what’s behind the HGV driver shortages. Plus: how did hapless Education Secretary Gavin Williamson get to where he is today, and what does it take to make a sporting hero? And from the States, Joanna Walters unpacks Texas’ constitutional battle over abortion."The margins in hauling are next to nothing." - Tom Reddy"I'm only 36, and I'm already tired of lorry driving. Nothing is changing in the conditions of the job." - Tom Reddy"Eastern European lorry drivers work a lot harder than we do." – Tom Reddy"It suits Boris Johnson to have an Education Secretary like Gavin Williamson - someone who won't slag him off, or make him look incompetent." - Ayesha Hazarika"We always think of Texas as being solidly Republican. But the game is still in play." - Justin Quirk"I still think Gareth Southgate should be Prime Minister." - Ayesha Hazarika"Women's sports is only now coming anywhere near gender parity." - Ayesha Hazarikahttps://www.patreon.com/bunkercastPresented by Ros Taylor with Justin Quirk and Ayesha Hazarika.

As the Government pushes ahead with plans to vaccinate children, is their COVID strategy only guided by the science when convenient? Plus: could Emma Raducanu’s stunning US Open success strike back against Priti Patel’s oppressive immigration policies? Alex Andreou and Arthur Snell unpack Afghanistan’s new cabinet, whether the latest lobbying scandals will affect Johnson’s rumoured cabinet reshuffle, and what Westminster will do to quell Sturgeon’s demands for Scottish independence.“We may be vaccinating people to protect them from catching COVID, not to stop them getting seriously ill from it.” - Alex Andreou.“If you've already clearly broken the ministerial code and gotten away with it, it will give you a green light to go ahead with it.” - Arthur Snell. “17 out of the 33 members of the Taliban cabinet are on the UN Sanctions list.” - Arthur Snell. Presented by Alex Andreou and Arthur Snell.

When award-winning author and journalist Evan Osnos returned home to America after a decade away, he found a nation gripped by fear and anger, with democratic norms under attack. But how did this happen? Evan talks to Dorian Lynskey about his latest book, Wildland: The Making of America’s Fury, which chronicles two decades of political fury and disfunction, from the September 11th attacks right up to the January 6th Capitol Siege, by following ordinary people in the places he grew up, as they navigate 21st century America.“There has been so much deception in U.S. politics, people discount the truth of anything.”“For most of American history, people were disadvantaged because of who they were. We’re talking about that more now.”“The effect of the pandemic has been to make more Americans at the top of society aware of those at the bottom.”“Donald Trump has not been banished from the system by any means, in fact he still holds huge sway over it.”“In trying to be bipartisan, Biden is appealing to Republican’s interests, not their sensibility.”“January 6th felt like the inevitable result of cynicism at the top of the GOP, and Trump’s time in charge.”Presented by Dorian Lynskey.

The book index might be an unassuming tool, yet it has a remarkable history - not least because it has shaped the modern world. Author, English professor and book historian Dennis Duncan talks to Alex Andreou about his latest novel Index, A History of the, which tells the remarkable story of our first search engine, from its invention (twice) in the 14th century, to preventing someone from becoming Speaker of the House, right up to our current love for Ctrl-F.“When we started to use books rather than read them, we needed to navigate them in a different way. that’s where the index came in”“An index actually prevented someone from being Speaker of the House of Commons”“It’s an unwritten rule that fiction books don’t have an index, but it hasn’t always been that way”Presented by Alex Andreou.

9/11: THE AUDIT OF WAR

9/11: THE AUDIT OF WAR

2021-09-0701:01:25

You couldn’t make it up: the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks coincides almost perfectly with the fall of Afghanistan and the West is left wondering what it was all for. Gavin Esler, former diplomat Arthur Snell and terrorism expert Dr Maria Norris recall where they were on the day the world changed, and ask if we’ve learned the right lessons. Plus, will climate change plus conflict create a new kind of crisis in Afghanistan? And how did 9/11 change pop culture. “We were told we’d seen the end of history. Then 9/11 happened.” – Gavin Esler“All war is about resources.” – Maria Norris“You can draw the cynical politics of the Trump era right back to 9/11.” – Arthur Snellhttps://www.patreon.com/bunkercastPresented by Andrew Harrison with Gavin Esler and Arthur Snell.

Parliament returns to a family-sized party pack of Government cruelty and ineptitude: a National Insurance hike that hits the lowest-paid the hardest, an end to the £20 Universal Credit bonus for the neediest families, and an Elections Bill that makes it harder for us to vote them out. Business as usual, then. Plus: the Texas Taliban’s war on abortion, the 20th anniversary of 9/11, and where in the world is Andrew Neil? Alex Andreou starts your week.  “The message to backbenchers is, stop opposing us and we might just cancel those vaccine passports you hate.”“Cancelling the extra Universal Credit isn’t just unjust, it’s economically illiterate.” “If I'd have said 'drink bleach, it's good for acne', I'd have been bundled into the back of a van. So why are the police ignoring COVID sceptics?”Presented and produced by Andrew Harrison. Assistant producers Jelena Sofronijevic and Jacob Archbold. Music by Kenny Dickinson.

What stopped Heseltine, Ken Clarke, Dennis Healey and Kinnock from taking the top slot? Why didn’t Barbara Castle become Britain’s first female PM? The Observer’s Nick Cohen talks to the political columnist and podcaster Steve Richards about his new book The Prime Ministers We Never Had… the intriguing factors that prevented these politicians from reaching power… the tragedy of the Miliband Brothers… and the alternate futures we could have seen if these flawed talents had won. “Those with a formidable past tend not to take the crown BECAUSE of that past.”“If Heseltine had won the leadership contest in 1990, he would have redefined the Tories as a pro-EU party.” “The Dennis Healeys and RAB Butlers were TOO good. They alienated their own parties.”“Ken Clarke used to say ‘My hobby is standing in Tory leadership contests and losing.’” “Ed Miliband destroyed David – but David destroyed Ed too. Because Ed then lost all sense of who he was.” https://www.patreon.com/bunkercasthttps://www.hive.co.uk/Product/Steve-Richards/The-Prime-Ministers-We-Never-Had--Success-and-Failure-from-Butler-to-Corbyn/26113646 See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
The Middle Ages are an unloved tract of history, by turns alien and baffling – but these thousand years of violence, crisis and conquest set the foundations for our modern world in the most unexpected ways. Historian, TV presenter and journalist Dan Jones tells Alex Andreou how his new book Powers and Thrones unveils a medieval world few of us understand, the parallels between Millwall and the Middle Ages, and why Dick Whittington deserves more than his panto fame…“The real Dick Whittington was an oligarch – and a mayor in France.” “We treat ‘medieval’ as an insult but the medieval world is not that different to our own.”“The things that animated people in the Middle Ages like climate change and plagues still animate us now.”“Unlike Empress Theodora, Dominic Cummings won't be that important in twenty years.”“The Crusades was more than a clash of civilisations – and you don’t learn that at school.” Presented by Alex Andreou.

The sight of Michael Gove getting his rave on in Aberdeen is the only cheering moment in a week of unremitting grimness. As the collapse of Afghanistan gives way to a growing refugee crisis, why is the UK Government doing the bare minimum for those who helped us? And what will the debacle mean for relations between government and military? Plus the Pen Farthing fiasco and the tyranny of TripAdvisor. “I am a Dog Fiend, but this Pen Farthing story made me so angry.” – Marie Le Conte“The Taliban don’t want the world looking too closely. Then they can start their culture war.” – Arthur SnellPresented by Andrew Harrison with Marie Le Conte, Yasmeen Serhan and Arthur Snell. Produced by Andrew Harrison.

Last section has more than a whiff of sneering superiority. It is possible to care members of more than one species at the same time. Ros is sniffy about people feeling empathy and compassion for dogs, but not she believes "brown people." Isn't the lack of compassion for them the problem? Those she castigates wouldn't be morally better people if they didn't care about dogs either... We should encourage others to extend their existing feelings of empathy and compassion, not use them as a reason to berate them.

Labour support “democracy and the rule of law”. I see no evidence of this and I would really like to.

Why does a British political podcast care about how the American police treat the American public?

My heroes in The Bunker were disappointingly simplistic in their analysis of British policing, they even compared the professional Service of England with the USA. This topic needs more work.

Great podcast! Quick feedback for "The Bunker" team, though—you simply cannot play this through Amazon Alexa! Why not? Because "The Bunker" and "Bunker" are names in use by other podcasts. It's not unique enough. "The Bunker UK Politics" is waaay less catchy, but at least voice recognition would find it. Hope this helps!

well said Naomi, my husband is my Superhero, he buys job lots of chopped tomatoes, tinned haricot/black eyed peas and other dry goods so we can make big pots of stews/chilli's/ragu's and freeze them. I would say to people do that now, I have no faith in the Tories at the best of times so a No Deal scenario is basically me going thin in matter of weeks after New Year. Brilliance pod today, big up to Naomi and Alex. #arghNoDeal

I'm slightly conflicted about Andrew Neil going. Being a Scottish woman and love hearing Scottish voices a little bit upset but Andrew Neil being what I call a right wing voice very happy. And what nutter is using Doritos in lasagne?!! They need educating right now

Normally really enjoy this programme but Naomi heavy handed comments about veganism really off-putting. Smug superior approach not a good look and regenerative agriculture (which can include animals) is the best approach to offset carbon.
