Conflict of Interest is a podcast which sees celebrity guests ask the simple questions about some of the world’s most important conflicts. What actually was the Cold War? Who is fighting in Yemen? Where are the Falklands Islands? Guided by an IWM curator, our guests are taken on a journey through IWM London and HMS Belfast in London, discovering the objects, people and stories which bring a conflict to life.
Series 1 unpacks some of the world’s most complicated recent conflicts, from the Northern Ireland Troubles to the Iraq War, with guests including actor Carey Mulligan, comedian Jamali Maddix and satirist Munya Chawawa.
Series 2 of Conflict of Interest will explore Cold War-era conflicts, from the Malayan Emergency to the Vietnam War, with guests including actor Russell Tovey, radio DJ Cerys Matthews and comedian Phil Wang. Coming soon on Wednesday 13 April.
