Downstream: Tories Don’t Think w/ Peter Hitchens

Listen on

Episode notes

Peter Hitchens is something of an iconoclast. Among his colleagues on the right, the Mail on Sunday columnist stands out as a heterodox thinker – yet he’s perhaps one of the few who could be described as a genuine conservative. Aaron Bastani meets him to discuss his previous life as a Trotskyist and a Moscow correspondent, and to interrogate his provocative opinions on everything from the second world war and abortion rights to the end of the Soviet Union and why he doesn’t vote.
