On this episode of Soft Power Radio, we have a fun conversation with Daniel Ryan Morse about his recently published book, Radio Empire: the BBC’s Eastern Service and the Emergence of the Global Anglophone Novel. Dan – UNR professor, guitar shredder, and home-recordist maverick – has written an engaging and in-depth study of a kind of mystical moment in the 20th century when a diverse group of anti-establishment, avant-garde writers was brought together as a pro-imperial propaganda project of the BBC. Tune in to hear how authors like James Joyce, Mulk Raj Anand, and Venu Chitale (and others) harnessed the power and possibilities of radio to advance both creative and political missions.
