To Gateshead, for the Festival of Free Thinking, where I am recording a talk followed by a panel discussion for Radio 3. The topic? Alcohol and hypocrisy. The other panel members, who are @davidyelland former Editor of the Sun, author and in recovery; @loveinaheadscarf author and Muslim women’s activist; and Barry Smith Professor of Philosophy.
I don’t want to give anything away before the debate, but I do know it’s going to be lively. Everyone sees alcohol through their own prism, myself included. I’m hoping to shake things up a bit, but maybe also look at some of my own positions anew.
