The Week Unwrapped podcast: Nudism, Hugo Boss and zero shades of grey

Is making fun of naturists a hate crime? Is Hugo Boss a brand bully? And is it time to update our laws on domestic abuse?

Olly Mann and The Week delve behind the headlines and debate what really matters from the past seven days.

In this week’s episode, we discuss:

Nudism

British Naturism chief Dr Mark Bass has said that his members are receiving abuse because of their decision to go naked, and that this should be prohibited under hate crime laws. So should nudism be considered a free speech issue?

Hugo Boss

A comedian has changed his name to Hugo Boss in a stunt designed to expose the fashion label as a trademark bully. Is shame and bad press the only way to fight back against such companies?

Zero shades of grey

This week, the latest version of the Domestic Abuse Bill had its first reading in the House of Commons. There are some 2.4 million victims of domestic abuse a year aged 16 to 74 (two thirds of whom are women) and more than one in ten of all offences recorded by the police are domestic abuse related. What does the bill contain, and could its measures have a lasting impact on justice in the UK?
