The Book Club

Andrew Doyle and Ian Leslie: How do we disagree?

51 min listen

The public conversation – especially on social media – is widely agreed to be of a dismally low quality. In this week’s Book Club podcast I’m joined by two people who have ideas about how we can make it better. Andrew Doyle’s new book is Free Speech: And Why It Matters; Ian Leslie’s is Conflicted: Why Arguments Are Tearing Us Apart And How They Can Bring Us Together. We talk free speech, tribalism, cancel culture – and how we can learn to disagree more productively.
