Write With Courage!

In less time than your commute takes we bring you a dose of danger from today's exciting writers including Scott Adams, Peter Hitchens and Nick Cohen. “An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.” Oscar Wilde. Your host Thor, mines for stories of previous failures, useable writing tips, and discovers how they got published to begin with! We bring the sort of Libertarian conversation, which happens when you are willing to listen and debate with writers of all political or religious persuasions and none. Might you be a writer with courage?

On Europe and Brexit - I just wanted to be able to vote out people who have control over my life. Being left wing doesn't automatically mean you are in favour of super-national institutions.

On Free speech - Terms such as left and right are pretty much meaningless these days. Terms like Free Speech would not remotely have been seen as associated with the political right (in the 1950s)...it has gradually become the left who are more associated with censorship.
