On "rocking the boat" reasonably: how to argue well

A little while ago I wrote a column about arguments, and how not to have them: 'How to lose an argument before you've really started'.

After this, I was interviewed by John Stanley on 4BC's 'News Talk'.

We covered the ideas in the column, but also the reasons for the rarity of good conversation: including teaching kids not to "answer back" or "rock the boat". You can listen here.
