Laurie Taylor talks to James E Katz, author of Perpetual Contact, about the ways in which the mobile phone has impacted on our relationships with friends and colleagues. They'll be exploring the psychological impact of being available at anytime, anywhere.
Laurie is also joined by the poet and one-time sociologist Linton Kwesi Johnson, who this week joins Jean-Paul Satre, James Joyce and Virginia Woolf as a Penguin Modern Classic author and Brian Allyne, lecturer in sociology, Goldsmiths College, University of London.
They discuss the social and political concerns that have underpinned his work for the past three decades.
