This edition of our Heads apart? podcast asks how we get to net zero, and whether we are doing enough to achieve it. We explore whether Extinction Rebellion’s recent protests and tactics are justified, how conservatives should respond to the emergence of Extinction Rebellion, and how radical policies to achieve net zero need to be. We are joined by  Professor Rupert Read, a national spokesperson for Extinction Rebellion, and Sam Hall, the new Director of the Conservative Environment Network and former civil servant in DEFRA.

Political analysis today can be shouty and superficial, with people shaming and stereotyping those who disagree with them. We take a different approach. Our podcast brings together people with different views to engage in respectful, thoughtful and detailed discussion on major political and cultural issues.
