Our guest is Christopher Snowdon, a freelance journalist with a focus on the intrusion of public health into the daily lives of ordinary people. He is the author of many books, including Velvet Glove; Iron Fist, A History of Anti-smoking, published in 2009, and more recently, Polemics, an anthology of articles on economics, politics, science, and culture. He is also Head of Lifestyle Economics at the Institute for Economic Affairs in London. We discuss his position on lockdowns which has surprised many and put him at odds with other libertarians.
