Culture with Robert Bound

Once a month this show will bring together two people linked by profession, passion or friendship. To kick things off we invited in Will Hodgkinson, chief music critic for ‘The Times’, and Tom Hodgkinson, the writer, critic and founder of ‘The Idler’ magazine. And we asked the brothers to bring along two things that fascinate them: something old and something new.

The Entrepreneurs

In the mid-1990s Australia-born Jasper Cuppaidge ended up in London after missing his connecting flight while on a surfing trip. Years later and still in London, he founded one of the city’s most famous and beloved beer brands, Camden Town Brewery, which he recently sold to much fanfare and controversy to the world’s largest brewer – for £85 million. This week Cuppaidge tells us what happened between that missed flight and that big sale, and what he’s learnt along the way.

The Bulletin with UBS

How does a country reconcile stabilising growth and accumulating debt? We ask whether China’s advocacy for globalisation is at odds with its restrictive capital controls and how the country can cope with an overheating property market, an accumulation of debt, wobbles in the interbank market and capital flight.

Meet the Writers

Born in Germany in the 1950s with Bengali ancestry, Steven Uhly is no stranger to racism. But his Spanish stepfather enriched him with the culture of Spain and life in Köln made him feel as German as the rest of the city’s residents. We ask Uhly what it means to be German and he tells us about his life and writing career and his latest book ‘Kingdom of Twilight’.
