Left Politics and Australian media with Antony Loewenstein

In Conversation with Antony Loewenstein

Today we’re talking Left Politics, and what it means to identify as Left-leaning in the current social and political climate. Our guest is Antony Loewenstein, independent journalist, author, blogger, and commentator on a wide range of issues. His most recent book Left Turn: Political Essays for the New Left is co-edited with Jeff Sparrow, editor of Overland literary journal. It was published by Melbourne University Press last month. It’s an expansive collection of writings on many of the issues often lambasted as being the domain of progressives in this country, and alternative ways of thinking about these issues and left politics.
