Free Exchange: The life and times of Michael Gove


Our guest this week on Free Exchange is the journalist and author Owen Bennett.

Owen has been a member of the parliamentary lobby since 2014, writing for publications such as the Daily Express, HP and City AM, and he was recently appointed Whitehall Editor at the Daily Telegraph.

In between reporting on the highs and lows of British politics he’s managed to write three books – Following Farage, The Brexit Club and his soon-to-be-released biography Michael Gove: A Man In A Hurry.

We sat down to talk about Gove’s upbringing, his time in the Oxford Union and those infamous cocaine revelations.
