Joe Dunthorne: Lessons from the Mosh Pit

Writer Joe Dunthorne asks what can be learnt about living together from the mosh pit at a rock gig.

Writer Joe Dunthorne asks what we can all learn about living together from the mosh pit at a rock gig.

Joe asks whether we should we all be a bit more open to social interaction. He contrasts the boisterous pushing and shoving at a rock gig with the quiet carriage on the train.

In one, he argues, everyone rubs along, and if you need something, you say it. The same cannot be said for the quiet carriage.

Producer: Giles Edwards.
