Philosopher and writer Eleanor Gordon-Smith came in to chat about her new book, Stop Being Reasonable, which explores the features and limits of rational argument and what really changes our minds. Dr Chiara De Lazzari from The University of Melbourne discusses the results of the 2019 European Parliamentary elections and what it means for the European Union and member states. Amy and Chiara explore the rise of movements on the left and right of politics, including populism in its many forms, and the DiEM25 movement led by former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis. Plus Ben Eltham from New Matilda on federal politics.
