Theoretical Physicist on Gaza, Simulation Theory and ‘White Holes’ | Aaron Meets Carlo Rovelli

From his radical youth in 1970s Italy to his research as one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists, Carlo Rovelli is as comfortable talking politics as he is explaining quantum theory.

He sat down with Aaron to talk about the future of Europe, white holes and why simulation theory is “bullsh*t”.

Rovelli’s book White Holes is available from Penguin.
