What is the Joe Rogan controversy? Should Spotify censor Rogan? Evan Thomas investigates.
Russia has a precedent – as with the Chernobyl emergency, they are not speaking up. There is a rouse in place, that of a national holiday from work, to mask the very real lockdown occurring in Russia, too. This shows that Russia, like everyone else, is faced with a pandemic-shaped threat, which they are actually reacting to. But why stay quiet about it, and why not help the rest of the world, which is what is expected of a superpower?
Honestly, the main reason I’m at Exeter isn’t because my career plans relate directly to my degree; I’ve no burning desire to become the next Plato, or enter into politics. If I didn’t participate in societies and intern, I’m pretty sure there’s no way I’d get a job after university – and to be honest, […]

So I do. Pint in […]
I have had a particularly long break from Exeter, as I spent this year on my Year Abroad in a tiny town in the east of Germany, not far from the Czech border. This extended time away from the glorious EX4 has indeed proved that absence makes the heart grow stronger – I’ve missed Exeter […]

I love my boyfriend, but I’m not sure how to recover from this passion. What do I do? Yours sincerely, Happily Dating Dear Happily Dating, Try not […]
Aaron Loose When I moved down to Exeter as an underweight bookworm last year, armed with little but a Wilko’s crockery kit and the dream of becoming a dashing student of the Humanities, nobody ever warned me about homebrew vodka. Let me be the first to tell you: if your new flatmate offers you a […]
With the dreaded last minute suitcase shoving upon us, you’d be forgiven if you condensed your uni life down to one travel sized suitcase. Not having to sit with a box on your lap for a three hour drive sound good? Not spending four hours unpacking your belongings at the other end seem appealing? The Exeposé […]
