After a proper chastising for not being available until Wednesday of last week, Toby redeems himself through his work for the Free Speech Union – and the exoneration of an Isle of Man broadcaster.
In the heart of this week’s discussion James and Toby tackle Cambridge’s hypocrisy on free speech. The academy is fine with backing Dr Priyamvada Gopal but not anyone that comes from the right of center. We now have a Maoist movement that’s sweeping up all before it and it’s even captured the Church of England. Finally, they wonder why in the world British BLM protestors want to defund the police when the coppers are nothing more than the para-military wing of The Guardian to begin with.
Then we’re on to what they’re watching and reading. James reviews HBO’s Perry Mason reboot, for Toby it’s between the book covers of Taylor Anderson’s The Destroyermen series, which James counters with Dostoevsky and Stendhal. No, really.
Opening sound this week of the Archbishop of Canterbury is from the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme.
