My appearance on Politics Live alongside Conservative Minister Nadhim Zahawi. I asked him and the Labour shadow minister live on air to meet with Extinction Rebellion protestors, and both agreed. These protests, and the over 1,000 people arrested are forcing this government, and its opposition, to pay more attention to the urgency of the climate and ecological crises.
Media appearances and talks
This is the Media appearances and talks section of my website. Here you will find a collection of some of the public appearances, philosophy lectures, and television interviews that I have accumulated in my career to date. For archiving of my some of local radio appearances, you can check out my Soundcloud account here.
I went head-to-head with Jacob Rees-Mogg on his show on LBC about the Extinction Rebellion protests in London, and it went, well, how you might expect it to have gone... Rees-Mogg's verbosity can't obfuscate the existential threat that we face. We need drastic action on the climate and ecological crises, and we need politicians with the courage to call for that action.
This clip is from The Julia Hartley-Brewer Breakfast Show with John Nicolson on the 19th April 2019. I found John to be one of the more thoughtful interviewers out of the litany of radio and television shows I appeared on that week.
My interview with Nick Ferrari at the start of the Extinction Rebellion protests in London in mid-April 2019. I take the fact that he resorted to speaking over me, turning my mic down, and failing to articulate himself as evidence that we are in the right, however desperately our detractors want that not to be the case.
On April 18th 2019 I was invited onto Channel 5 News to discuss the Extinction Rebellion protests that swept through London with Peter Bleksley. I tried to stop the conversation getting derailed and to focus on the extent to which the climate and ecological crises threaten the very basis of our civilisation.
This event featured an hour and a half panel discussion on the ethical and psychological dimensions of climate change on the 8th April 2019.
Extinction Rebellion in-depth hour-long interview on BBC Radio Norfolk, 8th March 2019 with myself and UEA Extinction Rebellion organiser, Tina Flores.
