Dan Geddes Interviews


Tomorrow and the day after, I will present two articles on the stand-up videos of one our resident satire legends, Dan Geddes! But he is also a public joke-a-lectual too, it seems! Here’s Dan speaking humorously, albeit with all due ethical seriousness, on some big topics in the world today!…

“One of the funniest guys I know sat down for an interview for the Glossy News 4K podcast.” (Brian)

The UK Will Never Leave Europe: But Will We Have the Courage to Leave the EU?

Accepting Refugees: Don’t Judge Eastern Europe too Harshly…? (1/2)


The topic of accepting and welcoming refugees into Europe is deeply contentious. And the recent massacres in Paris and the stories of a Syrian passport have not helped matters.

But whatever one feels about this issue, it’s surely important to remember that ‘Europe’ is not a monolithic power bloc. Human minds are inclined to think in abstractions like ‘Europe.’ To a degree, this is unavoidable…
