Lionel Shriver, Philip K. Howard with Geoffrey Harpham |
In her latest novel, Lionel Shriver introduced us to a dark, dystopian future most of us would rather not encounter in real life. Philip K. Howard, however, has a more hopeful view of the future and its ultimate potential. Were either of them able to convince the attendees their way is the right way? The only way?

We Must Defend Freedom Of Speech:Lionel Shriver & Brendan O'Neill

Play
Read more

Lionel Shriver and Brendan O'Neill sit down with CIS fellow Monica Wilkie for The Woke Inquisition, an online discussion on the recent race crisis, protests in the UK, the BLM movement and cancel culture.

Everything from The Golden Girls to brown rice is now ‘problematic’ as activists seek to erase anything ‘offensive.’ Is this akin to past censorious movements when books were burnt, and statues toppled or is this something different?

We now see shows like The Simpsons announcing they will not allow white voice actors to voice non-white characters. Is the end of fiction rapidly approaching? With statues, beloved children’s authors, and beer in the firing line will there be anything left after this latest round of cancellations?

Brendan O’Neill is the editor of Spiked Online and a former CIS scholar in residence. He is author of A Duty to Offend (2015) and Anti-Woke (2018).

Lionel Shriver is author of numerous international bestseller novels and a columnist with The Spectator in London. Lionel was recently in Australia for CIS as our 2019 Annual Lecture & Dinner.

Deborah Eisenberg and Lionel Shriver with Anne Blessing

Short stories are often overlooked as exciting, contemporary fiction…at least by those of us who have long since graduated high school or completed our English Literature degrees. Yet the readings and conversations by two masters of the craft, Deborah Eisenberg and Lionel Shriver, will make you take a second (or third, or fourth) look at short fiction in this laugh out loud conversation.

#45: Exposing Identity Politics & The Never Ending Lockdown With Lionel Shriver

Play
Read more

We’re excited to be joined this week by writer Lionel Shriver, author of the incredible book We Need to Talk about Kevin. Lionel discusses her background and how she came to question many foundational liberal philosophies when she was a young adult.  She's been a vocal advocate in the UK against the lockdowns and she cues us in on how the media has completely overblown this crisis.   And as riots, looting, and protests spread throughout America, Shriver explains her experience with identity politics.  Shriver's insight into the controversial topics of race and diversity are absolutely hated by the left and the establishment.  You'll love the way she thinks!

Robert Bryce returns to the podcast this week for a second time. He joined us at the very beginning of the pandemic lockdown and now we’re hoping his appearance means the lockdown is at an end. The media isn’t talking about it anymore anyway! Perhaps what they should be talking about is Robert’s new documentary Juice: How Electricity Explains the World. It is now available to stream online, so if you’re still stuck at home and looking for something to watch, we highly recommend it! Robert discusses the importance of - and dangers to - electricity grids around the world as well as a unique phenomenon called “electricity theft.” You won’t want to miss it.

We also want to thank you all again for tuning in each week and leaving so many wonderful reviews of the show on Apple Podcasts. Keep it up! We read and treasure each and every one.

Women leaders and Covid-19, Lionel Shriver, Florence Nightingale’s bicentenary

Play
Read more
The leaders of the USA, Brazil, Russia, Spain, Italy and the UK have come in for some criticism over their handling of the Coronavirus pandemic. They all have one thing in common, and it has been widely remarked on – they’re men. From Jacinda Ardern to Angela Merkel, women leaders across the world seem to be coping with Covid-19 better. But is it true? And, what might explain why? Jenni talks to Rosie Campbell, Director of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership and Professor of Politics at King’s College London and Clare Wenham, Assistant Professor in Global Health Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Could your relationship survive one partner’s endurance sport obsession? In her new novel The Motion of the Body Through Space, Lionel Shriver explores the impact of extreme exercise on the ageing body and on one marriage in particular. Since taking aim at the whole concept of cultural appropriation in a speech at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival in 2016, Shriver has become well known for her criticism of identity politics. How does that manifest in the book? She joins Jenni to discuss.

Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been hearing from women around the world who are making face masks at home for family, health-workers and in this case child refugees in camps in Greece. Rabha Nasr who lives in Greece now spoke to Maria Margaronis, who asked her to choose some music she listens to when she sews.

Next week marks 200 years since the birth of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. We discuss her life, and legacy and impact on nursing in 2020. Anne-Marie Rafferty, Professor of Nursing Policy, Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursery, Midwifery and Palliative Care at King’s College, London joins Jenni along with Greta Westwood, CEO of the Florence Nightingale Foundation.
