#1 Rafael Behr on Wilfred Owen

In this first episode of the Passages podcast, we talk to Guardian columnist Rafael Behr about Wilfred Owen’s ‘The Parable of the Old Man and the Young’. The discussion touches on political vanity as a catalyst for the First World War, the country’s efforts to keep alive the memory of a war whose centenary is now being marked, and Brexit and the future of Britain’s relationship with the European Union.

Rafael Behr is the former political editor of the New Statesmen and now writes a weekly column for the Guardian.
