The Godless Spellchecker Podcast

The Godless Spellchecker Podcast is an award winning weekly sceptical show in a conversational, interview format hosted by Stephen Knight. We hear from leading public figures as well as people without a public profile that have equally valuable experiences and ideas to share. The goal is to amplify good ideas and scrutinise bad ones. I think we've all learned something here today.

This week on The Knight Tube, Stephen Knight (@Gspellchecker) is joined by comedy writer and activist Graham Linehan. Graham had a very successful career in comedy writing (Father Ted, The IT Crowd) until he vocally opposed gender ideology. They discuss the destruction of his career by activists, gender ideology and his journey from pro-cancellation to the ‘cancelled’.
