Show Description
One of the people we met at the No Snowflakes Pub Night was up and coming Facebook personality the Young Conservative. Despite only starting his page on May 25 it has already gained 3.4k Facebook likes. The page features his car rants as well as his written thoughts on the news of the day. I thought it would be great to have him in the studio for a long form interview so we can all get to know him and hear his story.

We ask how he came to be a conservative so young, we explore what are the issues that matter to young people/Generation Z. We look at what it means to be a conservative and where he stands on issues such as the budget, the nanny state and how to solve social ills such as drugs and family breakdowns.

Being a 19-year-old university student we ask about some first-hand experiences in dealing with the cultural left on campus. He tells us how he deals with criticism and trolling on his page both from Antifa style groups and the alt-right. We also ask him about his entry into politics getting involved in the Australian Liberty Alliance.
