A moment of shameless self-promotion … I will have my two minutes of fame on the ABC’s Radio National Encounter program tomorrow (Saturday), called ‘Heaven and Earth’. I’ll be talking about utopia, religion and politics. The program begins at 5.05 pm, with a repeat on Wednesday October 3 at 1.05 pm. Somewhere in that mix I guess I will turn up. Or, of you prefer, you can listen now at the streaming audio & podcast links on the Encounter website at http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/encounter/heaven-and-earth/4276300 with a transcript to follow early next week.

All of this is hosted by the irrepressible David Rutledge.
