Hi

I'm Mallen

I run a YouTube channel with 'dangerously reasonable' videos, giving an independent, fact-focused, non-ideological take on politics, science and the messy bit where they bump into each other

I look at the research and analysis without preconception, and talk frankly about what I find.

Follow the channel to be challenged and entertained, probably occasionally infuriated!

Anyone can change the world

that takes skill and commitment
