Interview with Matt Ridley about his 1999 book Genome and how its insights on genomics have held up since. Touches on his other books and discusses the relevance of evolution to everything, why Francis Crick is going to get “cancelled” at some point, if he’s still a happy Thatcherite, Britain’s response to Covid-19; and the origin of Covid-19 (his next book project).
