Jordan B Peterson & David Benatar

This episode of the podcast hosts a debate between University of Cape Town Professor of Philosophy, David Benatar, and the University of Toronto’s Professor of psychology, Jordan B Peterson.

This episode plays host to former political speech writer turned consultant and election polling expert, Dawie Scholtz. He explains his voting models and the influencing factors in South Africa from geography to socio-economics to voter psychology.

Jonathan queries the DA’s recent leftward moves and whether a more liberal party might knock them from their perch.

Christopher Snowdon

This episode of the show plays host to Institute of Economic Affairs' director of lifestyle economics, columnist and author Christopher Snowdon. Chris discusses many of the ideas expressed in his new book 'Killjoys', which looks at the paternalistic policies of governments in an attempt to save people from themselves. The discussion takes a hard look at the NHS, the war on schools to ban fast food, and the authoritarian attempts to control all the vices of the working class. Jonathan delves into the zealotry and colossal waste of funding that is public health, while Roman explores the evolving status of regulation around e-cigarettes. The conversation ultimately makes its way to the status of Brexit, Donald Trump's silly tweets, and show favourite Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Columnist and political commentator, Simon Reader, is the guest on this episode.

Roman talks about his fondness of Jacob Rees-Mogg and Jonathan explains why there are still 7 more years left of Trump. The conversation concludes with a focus on the Left’s suicidal response to terrorism with pointless reactions like #thoughtsandprayers, and the gradual clampdown on free speech through the use of force.
