Should we categorise our sexuality? What even makes this thinkable to begin with? This week we explore Michel Foucault's classic text the "History of Sexuality Vol. 1: The Will to Knowledge" to find out how sexuality was constructed by biopower.
Correction: Foucault had planned for the History of Sexuality to be a six volume project and not five as was said in the episode. We apologise for this mistake
