Scott Morrison has criticised ‘negative globalism’. What makes sticking up for the nation state “Trumpian”? (1:39-23:48) The Liberal Party is currently celebrating its 75th anniversary has it become too much of a broad church/election machine to inspire conservative voters? (23:48-35:51) The NBA went into meltdown after a tweet made by the Houston Rockets’ general manager supporting Hong Kong protestors. Could – just maybe – the massive Chinese sports market have anything to do with it? (35:51-51:20) Your hosts Scott Hargreaves and Dr Chris Berg are joined by the IPA’s Andrew Bushnell and Dr Zac Gorman to answer these questions as well as dive into their culture picks which include classic journalism movie All the President’s Men, Douglas Murray’s new book The Madness of Crowds: Gender, Race and Identity, the hugely popular TV show Breaking Bad and the latest anti-hero movie to hit cinemas, Joker.

Daryl Morey Tweet
1/ I did not intend my tweet to cause any offense to Rockets fans and friends of mine in China. I was merely voicing one thought, based on one interpretation, of one complicated event. I have had a lot of opportunity since that tweet to hear and consider other perspectives.
