IEA: Is dissent on the ascent?
You’re listening to Live from Lord North Street, a podcast from the Institute of Economic Affairs. Back in June, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant in Virginia, because the owner didn’t like her association with President Donald Trump’s administration. Is this an act of discrimination, perfectly within one’s right, or both? Today we’re joined by Dr Steve Davies, Head of Education at the IEA, to discuss the concept of civility in public life. Interviewed by IEA News Editor Kate Andrews, Steve argues that any private establishment has the right to refuse service, but that doing so does not come without consequence. The pair discuss famous instances of discrimination, perpetuated by both the private sector and the state, and try to identify what the lines are between civil dissent and dangerously overstepping the mark.

Modern Mindset

Modern Mindset: Prevention is Better Than Cure
Adam talks to cardiologist Rick Shakes and Founder of Prescan Eddy Van Heel about why we have regular check ups in several areas of our life such as car MOT’s and regular dental check ups but rarely have a thorough health check that can look for the warning signs of serious medical issues such as cancer, heart disease and others. The founder of Prescan also reveals that his own company detected a form on cancer early enough to avoid what would otherwise be a potentially deadly outcome. They discuss why we have a tendency to bury our head in the sand when it comes to the most precious commodity – out health!

NEF: Can Populism Be Progressive?
Jeremy Corbyn and Donald Trump; Erdogan in Turkey and the Five Star Movement in Italy; Podemos in Spain and Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines. All of them have been described as populists. But what does ​‘populism’ actually mean? How can it include people with wildly different ideologies under the same umbrella? Is it possible to be a progressive populist – and even if it is, should progressives use that label? Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is joined by academic and writer Eliane Glaser, and Michael Walker from Novara Media.
