Toby Young on Cancel Culture It's Complicated

    • Health & Fitness

The first of two episodes around the US Election looking at the subject of free speech and how we disagree and debate online. Toby Young is on the podcast this week talking about his personal experience of being cancelled in 2018, why he set up the Free Speech Union to help others who have been through similar experiences, falling foul of a Twitchfork mob, 'offence archaeology' and why he thinks it might be an uphill task trying to foster civil debate and polite disagreement in the digital sphere.
