When John Safran set out to meet those he calls the Australian deplorables, he discovered blonde-haired, blue-eyed boys aspiring to be ISIS freedom fighters, an Islamic preacher who quotes Monty Python and newly arrived immigrants who oppose multiculturalism.

In his inimitable style, with honesty, wit and a healthy dose of larrikin irreverence, he presents his own take on Australia today.

He talks to David Astle about how “it all depends what you mean by extremist”.
