Episodes

How Girls turned TV upside down  

Lena Dunham's show skewered millennial culture - but did it revolutionise TV? Plus: artist Ryan Gander on why he never does the same thing twice

Self-help special! Featuring smartphones and an Agony Uncle  

We tested the apps that promise to make us more productive, mindful and all-round better versions of ourselves, and discuss the (mixed) results with Tim Harford. Plus: your Valentine's Day sorted.

Culture stands up to Trump. Plus: Elif Shafak  

From museum strikes to a micro-penis, how artists are responding to the US president; Turkey's most popular female novelist on Islam, feminism and her unconventional marriage; and lunch with the man who taught the world how to beat the casinos.

The Oscars dissected, and the man behind Brexit  

Are La La Land, Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea worth the hype? Does Daniel Hannan have any regrets about Britain’s vote to leave the EU? And why did one British artist photograph every page of the Koran?

The death of new music? Plus: Wayne McGregor  

Did pop itself die alongside David Bowie and Prince last year? Or is it constantly reinventing itself? We debate the state of new music and look forward to the albums of 2017. Plus, choreographer Wayne McGregor on raving in 1990s – and why he’s turning Virginia Woolf into ballet.

'Pig-killing day' by David Szalay  

'It is over before either of us has really understood what is happening.' David Szalay, whose novel 'All That Man Is' was shortlisted for the 2016 Man Booker Prize, reads his short story, specially written for the FT.

2016: the good, the bad and the ugly, with Simon Schama  

We try to make sense of the biggest cultural moments in a crazy year, from the brilliance of Beyoncé to the hideousness of hygge. Plus, the chefs behind the London restaurant Honey & Co talk about feasting, the secrets to Middle Eastern cooking, and their working life as a couple.

Politics and culture in the age of anger  

Pankaj Mishra and Helen Lewis join us to discuss why everyone is so full of rage right now; Nigerian-American artist Njideka Akunyili Crosby on depicting her naked husband in her work; and what to look out for in the FT's interview with South African comedian and Daily Show host Trevor Noah

Who gets to judge?  

The power - and politics - of prize-giving, from Dylan's Nobel to Beatty's Booker; the writer and rapper Kate Tempest on what William Blake and Wu-Tang have in common; and a buffet with the man who jailed Iceland's bankers.

Don't worry, you’re not a narcissist (probably)  

FT critics discuss our age of self-admiration and why it troubles us so much; 'bad boy' theatre director Ivo van Hove on how his punk origins still inspire his work; and what it's like to have lunch with the radical performance artist Marina Abramovic.
