David Linden: Scottish independence and being treated like Ned Flanders

A Mucky Business with Tim Farron

Tim Farron discusses Scottish independence with SNP MP David Linden, a Christian friend on the opposite side of the debate. David, who joined the SNP aged 11, explains why he wants Scotland to leave the UK, how he became a Christian as a teenager and how he was treated differently in politics after his conversion, when he was previously seen as a 'rising star'.As Rishi Sunak delivers his plan for the economy, Tim argues for a budget that helps those in debt and for Christians to be willing to make their own financial sacrifices to benefit others.For feedback or questions, email farron@premier.org.uk

Unique - Dr. David Linden On The Roots Of Individuality

Midday

Now, a conversation about what makes us, us.  Or more specifically, what makes me, me and you, you?  With all that we share in common -- heads and shoulder, knees and toes, for example  -- what are the reasons that we are all unique individuals?  Dr. David Linden is a neuroscientist and professor at Johns Hopkins University who started thinking about this when he signed up on an on-line dating website. Dr. Linden is the author of several fascinating books.  The Accidental Mind explored how our brains evolved over time to make us capable of things like romantic love and belief in God.  In a book called The Compass of Pleasure, he argued that we are hard-wired to seek pleasure in a variety of forms.  And in a book called Touch, he explored how the ways in which we experience touch are all tied, in one way or another, to our emotions.  Those books are all about what makes us the same.  His new book is about what makes us different.  It’s called Unique: The New Science of Human Individuality. David Linden joins us on Zoom…See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
