Tim Lott was the first mainstream UK journalist to profile Jordan Peterson, in the Spectator magazine. A novelist and storyteller, he also describes himself as an ‘old lefty’.

In this, he discusses with Rebel Wisdom’s David Fuller how the ‘left’ has changed in his lifetime – what the current left could learn from Jordan Peterson’s thought, and the effect that a new ideological thinking is having on art and literature.
