  • Geoff Norcott: I Would Never Be Friends With...
    Can you be friends with someone who’s politically very different? Are anti-vaxxers welcome in your house? Have you fallen out over anyone over Meghan Markle? What about climate change deniers? Someone who insists All Lives Matter? Someone who boos footballers taking the knee? Someone who paid to go and see Nigel Farage? In Geoff Norcott's new Radio 4 show – I Could Never Be Friends With... - he'll be looking into the new divisions there are between us Brits. Whether they've come out of Brexit, Covid, Black Lives Matter or Meghan Markle. He'll be talking to his audience about their own experiences and to Tom Walker (Jonathan Pie) about the criticism his comedy has had, particularly from the Left. Where are the limits of free speech, why do we all get offended so easily now and where are your own personal red lines? His special guest is Athena Kugblenu. Additional writing by Kevin Day. Producer Alison Vernon-Smith Exec Producer: Caroline Raphael Sound Engineer: David Thomas A Pier Production for BBC Radio 4
