“In Our Time” is a remarkable weekly radio show on BBC Radio 4 hosted by veteran broadcaster, Melvyn Bragg, in which a panel of experts discuss important events and ideas in the cultural history of humankind. On March of this year they did a wonderful overview of India’s beloved spiritual text, the Bhagavad Gita. It’s only 45 minutes long and gives you a real sense of its history and content. Well worth a listen.
