In 2017, if you disagree with someone politically, it can feel impossible to understand how they don’t see things the way you do. On Talk, we’ll be getting two leading figures on opposite sides of an issue that matters out of their echo chambers, and into our studio together, to question each other on why they hold the beliefs they do. Tune in every second Thursday from 19:45-20:30 for a different kind of debate show.
