πŸ‘€ Robert Manne with Jeff Sparrow

When Australia's pre-eminent public intellectual, Robert Manne, was warned that if he wished to live his larynx would have to be removed, his reaction was, "I'd rather die". After the operations, however, he discovered that his thinking had been reinvigorated and his love of life intensified, despite the sharpened understanding that we are all living on "borrowed time'. Robert talks with Jeff Sparrow about his values - both personal and social - and why they matter to him.
