Podcast Favorites: In Our Time: Orwell's Animal Farm

On this great podcast episode of "In Our Time" (yes, BBC4) the host (Melvyn Bragg) and guests have a very interesting discussion about the book "Animal Farm", and its allegorical meaning, particularly in the time it was written (1944). Discussions give very interesting look into Orwell as a person as well as search out how well Orwell "got it right" with respect to "the Old Left". Highly recommended (particularly in these Orwellian times). Download the episode here: High Bandwidth, Lower Bandwidth
