Spectator Out Loud

Douglas Murray, Francis Pike and Philip Hensher

Text settings

On this week's episode, Douglas Murray asks - why would anyone want to be a government adviser, given what's happened to Tony Abbott? The historian Francis Pike reads his piece on Thailand's Caligula; and Philip Hensher reviews a new book on Wagner.

Spectator Out Loud is a weekly audio collection of three Spectator writers reading their pieces in the latest issue.
