Listen now (46 mins) | From one cult to another
Really concerning how ideological cult mentality is taking over in academia ( and of course elsewhere too- eg in political parties)
Ben sounds like a wonderful man, with a good level head on him. A really interesting story which is also very concerning to hear. So awful the level of homophobia deep seated in university life. Glad he found the courage to walk away from the awful bullying culture he found himself in. Good luck to him and thanks Julie for capturing this story.
Fantastic interview, many thanks - what a lovely and talented bloke Ben is!
I wish I could have listened longer - the noise in the background was too distracting.
