Stepping into the 'Dreamer’s Hotel' to reimagine a new world Starting From Scratch

Compassion and communication – two aspects of human nature that are seemingly being lost. Hatred spread on social media, hostile political rhetoric, a lack of equality and civility – these are just some of the problems spoken about by Rou Reynolds in his new book ‘A Treatise On Possibility’. From the Enter Shikari frontman comes a thought-provoking deep-dive into the vast capabilities of human ingenuity. In this episode he explores many of the fascinating things he learnt while writing the book, and we start by stepping into the ‘Dreamer’s Hotel’, a place where we’re able to take stock, and examine life from a different perspective.
