Episode 16: Identity – David Baddiel on Jewishness, antisemitism (and a bit about football)
Rafael talks to David Baddiel on the launch of his new book - 'Jews Don't Count'
Rafael Behr talks to author and comedian David Baddiel about his book “Jews Don't Count” – a closely argued polemic about the failure of progressive-left politics to treat antisemitism with the same moral rigour as is applied to other kinds of racism.
The frank and at times raw conversation deals with the social and cultural dimensions of one of history's oldest prejudices, as well as the individual emotional and psychological components of a secular Jewish identity. They also talk a little bit about football.
