Lindsay Perigo is back with a brand-new interview show

Lindsay Perigo is back with a brand-new interview show.

Surrounded by the excellent classical Greek philosophers in Raphael’s glorious recreation of the School of Athens, Lindsay is in the company of true greatness – a fitting backdrop to the in-depth conversations on philosophy, politics and culture that he will be having with a special guest every week.

Tonight at 7.30 on Stratos, Sky 89, our special guest, Dr. Ron Smith from Waikato University, will be interviewed by Lindsay on his thoughts about his own philosophical education. Dr. Smith will also discuss post-tsunami Japan and its damaged nuclear reactors, as well as the situation in Libya and that "Mad Dog of the Middle East," Gaddafi.

At the finale of the show each week, Lindsay will play a classical musical gem chosen lovingly from the colourful palette of the Romantic era ... something which makes him go weak at the knees with “value-swoon” and something so objectively beautiful that viewers will have little choice but to swoon too.

Join us for a half hour of intelligent discourse.

PERIGO! Thursday evenings at 7.30 on Stratos, Sky 89.
