Planet Normal: How the government ‘weaponised fear’ over lockdowns


Some parallels with NZ. Worth listening to

Podcast series from the UK Telegraph, hosted by economist and columnist Liam Halligan and co-host columnist Alison Pearson, looking at issues of the moment.

May 20, 2021

The doom cycle is all too much for this week’s Planet Normal stowaway, Laura Dodsworth. The author and photographer has written a new book on the UK government’s “weaponisation of fear” over the pandemic, and she joins Telegraph columnists Allison Pearson and Liam Halligan’s rocket of reason to share her damning take on the “unethical” use of behavioural psychology over lockdown.

Elsewhere on the podcast, our co-pilots celebrate a victory for common sense after Allison spearheaded a successful takedown of so-called “e-medicine”, Liam proposes a solution to Britain’s doctor shortage and one lucky listener wins a coveted Planet Normal mug.
