Richard Osman – The point of sociology and media studies.

“Sociology should be taught everywhere, that’s my view. Even GCSE Sociology arms you against a lifetime of spin, ‘fake news’ and moral panic.”

“Sociology and Media Studies were always derided as Mickey Mouse subjects, but now they’re the only subjects which really explain our world.”

“I’ve always said that the two things I learned at school that I use every day are A Level Sociology and O Level Statistics!”
