- Bill Resnick talks with Ben Goldacre about how the pharmaceutical industry has influenced so much of mental health treatment.
- Joe Clement reviews The Pervert's Guide to Ideology, a film directed by Sophie Fiennes and staring psychoanalytic philosopher Slavoj Zizek, who examines through film and music the ways that ideology operate today, which he argues is more a matter of what we do than what we know.
