Will Self on Radio4 - A Point of View. Nostalgia Ain't What It Used To Be!

Saw/heard this and thought of Retromania[1] and Hauntology[2]. A 10 minute essay on how nostalgia is an affectation of the young because they have so little of it. Touching on familiar territory about the digital availability of all of history and the ever-accelerating tempo of the news cycle.
