audio of Tsiolkas and Loewenstein

You can now listen, courtesy ABC radio, to streaming audio of the Overland discussion between Christos Tsiolkas and Antony Loewenstein. Check it out here. The ABC glosses it thus:

Public intellectuals and the unpopular stance

The literary magazine, Overland recently invited two public intellectuals − Christos Tsiolkas and Antony Loewenstein − to discuss the consequences of saying unpopular things, something they are both quite familiar with. Christos is a well known Melbourne based author, whose latest novel, The Slap, is about the aftermath of a man hitting another person’s child at a barbeque.

Antony Loewenstein is a Sydney based journalist − he is best known as a Jewish critic of the actions of the Israeli government − expressed in his book − My Israel Question, and his blog http://antonyloewenstein.com/*

Overland is a not-for-profit magazine with a proud history of supporting writers, and publishing ideas and voices often excluded from other places.
