On the January 18th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Professor Leif Wenar about his new book Blood Oil: Tyrants, Violence, and the Rules that Run the World.

In spite of major progress and the Leave it in the Ground movement, we’re still connected to suffering and injustice through our addiction to oil. What are the global consequences of our reliance on natural resources? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with me, Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guest:

Leif Wenar, chair of philosophy and law at King's College London
