Sathnam Sanghera on why books can save us and how to understand Empire - How to Fail with Elizabeth Day

Something Rhymes with Purple
Something Rhymes with Purple
Sathnam has written Empireland and more recently Empireworld, two bestselling books which have garnered him critical acclaim, a Channel 4 documentary and which - even more crucially - have changed the national discourse around our colonial past. Without necessarily meaning to, Sathnam has become a historian. But his success has not been uncomplicated: he’s suffered horrendous racist abuse which has changed the way he goes out into the world (sometimes).

On How to Fail Sathnam discusses how he avoids joining in, the importance of saying thank you and why the best teachers can make a lifelong impact. Plus: why nuance in discussion is often ignored but absolutely vital.



How to Fail is an Elizabeth Day and Sony Music Entertainment Production.
