Series 1, Episode 15: Ed Husain

When I present Channel 4 News, in-depth analysis and great journalism come together to explain the events of the day. But this new podcast wants to help you go much deeper and discuss answers, not just problems.

Each week, I’ll speak to one guest, at length, who will hopefully have some answers – without having to rely on a 30 second sound bite.

Our guest this week is former Islamic extremist turned anti-radicalisation think-tank founder Ed Husain.

He talks to me on the release of his new book House of Islam: A Global History. His faith in peace, unity and God sustains, informed by his own journey from young radical to progressive thinker. Drawing from his own experience and thousands of years of Islamic history, he argues that it is only through religion itself that extremism can be tackled.
