Hugh Bonneville
He’s the star of Downton Abbey, Paddington, Viceroy’s House and W1A. Today, I’m joined by one of Britain’s best loved actors - and part-time vaccine volunteer - Hugh Bonneville.  Hugh stars in a new film called To Olivia where he plays the celebrated author Roald Dahl. We talk about that later on in the interview - and he was just so lovely to chat to on a very rainy gloomy lockdown day. I’ve interviewed Hugh a few times in the past and he never fails to make me laugh. He’s travelled so extensively both through his work and through being a really keen traveller himself, so we cover a lot of ground.  He transports us to the deserts of Utah and to pockets of serenity among the chaos of India. We visit the pristine coves of the Costa Brava and the campsites of France. And he reveals what is on the cards for Downton Abbey and Paddington, if you’re a fan of either (or both like me) you’ll be very happy with what Hugh has to say! Destination Recap: * France  * Tamariu, Costa Brava, Spain * Aigua Xelida, Spain * Aigua Blava, Spain  * Sherbourne, Dorset, England  * Road trip through Egypt, Sudan, Uganda and Kenya * Nile River Boat, Sudan * Juba, Sudan * India * Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru, Maldives * Amangiri, Utah, USA * Mihir Garh, Jodphur, India * Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA * South America To Olivia, a Sky Original film, is out on Sky Cinema and NOW TV right now.  If you’re enjoying the podcast, don’t forget to hit subscribe on your podcast app so that you’re updated with a new episode each week.

Is climate change actually being taken seriously?
In this last episode of the series, we’ll be exploring how stories work for and against climate change. Subscribe to the podcast here: https://mind-over-chatter.captivate.fm/listen We cover a lot of ground: from hippos and polar bears to how many times ‘sex’ and ‘tea’ were mentioned on TV between 2017 and 2018… so what’s all of this got to do with sustainability and climate change? Join us to find out! Our storytelling experts this time are Richard Staley (lecturer in the history and philosophy of science, Sarah Dillon (author, researcher and broadcaster) and Martin Rees (cosmologist, astrophysicist, and Astronomer Royal). This episode was produced by Nick Saffell, James Dolan, and Naomi Clements-Brod. Please take our survey. https://bit.ly/38uXJaG How did you find us? Do you want more Mind Over Chatter in your life? Less? We want to know. So we put together this survey. If you could please take a few minutes to fill it out, it would be a big help. Thanks very much. Guest Bios: Martin Rees (@LordMartinRees) Martin Rees (Lord Rees of Ludlow, OM FRS) is an astrophysicist and cosmologist, and the UK's Astronomer Royal. He has been increasingly concerned in recent years about long-term global issues – the pressures that a growing and more demanding population are placing on the environment, sustainability and biodiversity; and the impact of powerful new technologies. He is co-founder of the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER) at the University of Cambridge with a focus on these issues. In addition to his research publications, which total over 500, he has written extensively for a general readership. His ten books include 'Just Six Numbers', 'Our Cosmic Habitat', ‘Gravity’s Fatal Attraction’, and the recently-published, 'On the Future: Prospects for Humanity'. https://www.martinrees.uk/ Dr Sarah Dillon (@drsarahdillon) Sarah Dillon is a Reader in Literature and Film in the Faculty of English at the University of Cambridge. Her forthcoming book (Storylistening: Narrative Evidence and Public Reasoning, co-authored with Claire Craig) makes a case for the value of attention to stories, and the importance of understanding their functions and effects, in the context of high-level decision-making and policy-making. http://drsarahdillon.com/ https://www.english.cam.ac.uk/people/Sarah.Dillon/ Dr Richard Staley Hans Rausing Lecturer and Reader in History and Philosophy of Science. Currently leading the Making Climate History project. The project develops a fundamental new perspective on the histories and geographies of climate change by linking making and knowing in the emergence of the climate sciences over the past two centuries. We examine the entwined social, physical, and economic timescales of climate change over the entire period it took to remake the climate, and to recognise that we are changing it. https://www.people.hps.cam.ac.uk/index/teaching-officers/staley

Cosmetics queen Kate Morris on why you need to manage energy, not time

Adore Beauty has expanded its offer to more than 200 brands and 13,000 products, earning Kate the Business Innovation Award for Victoria at the Telstra Business Women’s Awards in 2014, and an induction into the Australian Businesswomen’s Network Hall of Fame in 2015. Adore Beauty floated on the Australian Stock Exchange in 2020 for a reputed $600 million price tag. But how has Morrish achieved such growth? How does she structure her time, her business operations, and even her daily beauty routine for maximum effectiveness?
