In this week’s books podcast I’m talking — this time in front of a live audience at Daunt Books — to Andrew Roberts about his new biography of Winston Churchill. Could even as deft a historian as Andrew find anything new to say about this most written-about of politicians? He says yes. We discuss whether Churchill was a man of principle or an opportunist, talk about the tricky question of whether he was a racist, about whether he was, as widely thought, an alcoholic and a depressive, and of course about his magnificent wartime oratory and his remarkable mix of character traits.
