As we’ve been speaking about on the show, free speech is basically the topic de jour for New Zealanders at the moment. In the last month we’ve had a visit from controversial canadians Stefan Molyneux and Lauren Southern, and just this week Massey University cancelled an event with former National Party leader Don Brash. However, last night ,Brash had his chance to speak in a debate at the University of Auckland about whether PC culture has limited free speech in this country. Herald senior writer Simon Wilson was in the debate, and spoke with Stewart Sowman-Lund about what happened.

Plus: Kelly, Stewart and Laura discuss the results of the Twitter poll, which asked listeners whether they had ever protested.
