On this episode of the New Statesman’s new culture podcast, The Back Half, Tom Gatti and Kate Mossman discuss the BBC’s torture-heavy Guy Fawkes drama Gunpowder. Then we hear an excerpt from Tom’s conversation with Man Booker prize-winning novelist George Saunders, and finally celebrate the noniversary of the immortal Coolio song “Gangsta’s Paradise”.
