No-one turns up where they’re not wanted quite like satirist, documentarian and writer John Safran. His latest offering, Depends What You Mean by Extremist, delves into the world of white nationalists, ISIS supporters, anarchists and more. Drinking shots with nationalists, and gobbling falafel with radicals, John was there the year extremism entered everyday life. He talks to Sally Warhaft about the political climate in Australia, his adventures with extremists, and the lessons he learned.
