The Vultures' Nest

The Vultures' Nest is Radio 2ser's weekly cultural criticism show hosted by culture vultures: Karla Arnall, James Dalton, Nic Healey,  Jessica Keath, Fiona Pepper and Jessica Tuckwell. Every week the vultures swoop on two cultural morsels, bring them back to the nest and tear them apart. The vultures pick through anything with meat on it; from 3D printed organs to modern day slavery.
