Some of the Festival’s most distinguished guests reveal personal tips for these anxiety-inducing times – from chicken soup to Valium. How do we keep sane in a time of Brexit and Trump, human rights abuses and climate change? Binge on Netflix? Mainline pinot gris? Move to Canada? Sofija Stefanovic talks to Hisham Matar (The Return), Bill Hayes (Insomniac City: New York, Oliver, and Me), Ivan Coyote, Jamie Morton, and sociologist Ruth Quibell about remedies for chaos.
