My guest today is Evan Smith. Evan is a Research Fellow in History in the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences at Flinders University in Australia. His academic work focuses on Australian, British and South African politics and history. He has published on a broad variety of topics relevant to RADIKAAL, including British Communism, counter-terrorism, as well as fascism and anti-fascism. His latest book is the very timely “No Platform: A History of Anti-Fascism, Universities and the Limits of Free Speech”, published by Routledge this year. He tweets at @evanishistory.
