For the next four weeks, spiked’s editor Brendan O’Neill is guest-hosting Counterpoint, the alternative-thinking current-affairs show on Radio National on ABC in Australia. Recorded in London, New York and Washington over the past few weeks, Brendan’s four one-hour shows will tackle everything from reason to religion, freedom to feminism. In the first show, broadcast in Australia this week, Brendan talks Enlightenment, and specifically how the ideals of that Age of Reason a couple of centuries back might be resuscitated today.
