You can now listen to the 2015 John Peel Lecture, given by sonic innovator Brian Eno.

The BBC website describes the 2015 lecture as about the "symbiotically connected" world of culture:

"This year's John Peel Lecture will examine the ecology of culture. Brian Eno will seek to demonstrate how the whole complex of individuals and institutions engaged in culture - artists, broadcasters, gallerists, promoters, DJs, managers, lawyers, fans - are symbiotically connected parts of a single huge organism which we call Culture. He will outline some of his thinking on this very unpredictable ecology and explore the interconnective relationships between the elements and components that combine to create our culture, and show how cultural processes confer essential and important benefits on society."

The lecture took place at the Radio Academy's Radio Festival at the London's British Library yesterday.

Previous talks from Iggy Pop, Charlotte Church, Pete Townshend, and Billy Bragg can be seen/heard on the BBC website.
