The Swift Half with Snowdon ft. Tim Stanley

In this episode of The Swift Half, Chris chats with historian, and columnist and leader writer for The Telegraph - Tim Stanley.

They discuss Tim's upcoming book 'Whatever Happened to Tradition? History, Belonging and the Future of the West' 'The West feels lost. Brexit, Trump, the coronavirus: we hurtle from one crisis to another, lacking definition, terrified that our best days are behind us. The central argument of this book is that we can only face the future with hope if we have a proper sense of tradition – political, social and religious. We ignore our past at our peril. The problem, argues Tim Stanley, is that the Western tradition is anti-tradition, that we have a habit of discarding old ways and old knowledge, leaving us uncertain how to act or, even, of who we really are.'
