Host Adrian Goldberg hears from two top guests:
Stephanie Brobbey, founder and Chief Exec of the Good Ancestor Movement, which supports wealthy individuals to redistribute their cash in a socially conscious way...
And Symon Hill, who was arrested in Oxford after shouting “who elected him?” at the proclamation of Charles accession to the throne.
