Ep 11: Trump and French on Campus Free Speech

April 2, 2019

The federal budget shows the Liberals are fighting for reelection, but are they fighting for smaller government and lower taxes? (1:40-14:37) As the release of the French Review approaches, we examine the state of free speech at Australian universities, and the role of universities when so much censorship comes from students? (14:37-33:58) And Labor announces their new climate policy - are electric cars really the future? (33:58-47:29) Scott Hargreaves and Dr Chris Berg are joined by Dr Bella d'Abrera and Professor Sinclair Davidson to discuss these issues and share what they've been reading, watching and listening to, including the NRA museum in Virginia, Love, Death and Robots and two different translations of The Odyssey (47:29-1:01:53)
