Ep#74 – Caroline Fourest – Charlie Hebdo

A year on from the horrific terror attacks on the headquarters of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, I’m fortunate to be joined by author Caroline Fourest (@CarolineFourest) on The #GSPodcast. We talk about her excellent new book ‘In Praise of Blasphemy: Why Charlie Hebdo Is Not “Islamophobic”.

In addition, we discuss secularism, the far right and hate speech laws in France. #JeSuisCharlie
