This week, Hyphen contributor Rabina Khan, Dr Richard McNeil-Willson, an academic specialising in critical extremism studies and the journalist and author Michael Segalov discuss why language matters when talking about the Israel-Palestine conflict, and Elon Musk’s decision to reinstate the accounts of far-right commentators on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter. Sparked by the auction of a football shirt worn by the late Sir Bobby Charlton in the 1966 World Cup semi-final, our panel also reveals their most valuable items of personal memorabilia.

Host Reya El-Salahi chats to the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Sunday religious programme, Edward Stourton, about the importance of religious literacy amid the Israel-Palestine conflict, and the release of his new book Sunday.

Plus, journalist Natalie Donback meets the Moroccan YouTuber reviving Spain’s shepherding tradition.
