Oscar Perress was able to talk to Samuel Miller McDonald, a journalist, writer and student currently based in the UK for his studies at Oxford. Though talking for over an hour, their discussion around Covid-19 can be understood as a discussion on a need for systems change. The interview play on The Wire in three separate parts over a number of weeks, but here are those parts in full. 

They touch on common patterns that emerge from national emergencies, "eco-fascism" and the politics of reaction as well as conceptualising a response to the climate crisis from how our world has reacted and responded to Covid-19.

Since we have gone into lockdown, an epidemic response committee has been set up, meeting three times a week to discuss how the government's response has been going so far and here it could be better. Unlike other select committees, this one has been operating remotely via zoom and broadcasted via livestream as well as on parliamentary TV. It also has a different composition to most other committees, with this one with a majority of opposition MP’s, as well as speakers from a wide range of areas. This week James has talked to the leader of the ACT party, David Seymour, about how he has found the response committee so far. James starts off by asking this exact question. If you are wanting to know more about the epidemic response committee, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we have a segment covering that day's discussions, which are all uploaded to bCasts.
