#208 Emergency Power (with Dr. Luke Kemp)

This week I spoke with a brilliant researcher, Dr. Luke Kemp. Luke is a research associate at the Centre for The Study of Existential Risk at Cambridge University. He is an incredible source of information regarding state power, control, what happens governmentally in times of crises, and the subsequent impact on citizens. We speak about the use of Emergency Powers and the abuse of these powers, too: how and why they are employed, and why they are often never taken away once implemented.  For more info on Luke’s work and a reading list, go here: https://www.cser.ac.uk/news/meet-researcher-dr-luke-kemp/ More Info: Come see me live - check out upcoming dates: https://www.russellbrand.com/live-dates/ My meditation podcast Above the Noise is out now only on Luminary, I will be releasing guided meditations every Wednesday, please check out it: http://luminary.link/meditate Elites are taking over!

Om Podcasten

A weekly interview series from Russell Brand that examines what's beneath the surface—of the people we admire, the ideas that define our time, and the history we’re told. Speaking with guests from the worlds of academia, popular culture, and the arts, Russell seeks to uncover the ulterior truth behind our constructed reality. And have a laugh. On his new podcast ‘Above the Noise’ Russell guides us all—curious beginners, spiritual skeptics, and experienced practitioners—in brief, 10-minute meditations. Listen to Above the Noise on Luminary
