The Heretic: Inside Peter Ridd’s fight for freedom of speech on climate change is an insiders’ account of Peter Ridd’s ongoing legal battle with James Cook University. It tells the story of why Peter spoke out on the bad science surrounding climate change and the Great Barrier Reef, the extraordinary lengths that James Cook University went to silence him, and how Peter fought back in court.


Written and presented by IPA Director of Policy Gideon Rozner, The Heretic series draws on extensive interviews with Peter’s colleagues, legal team and former students, as well as journalists, commentators, union leaders, IPA staff and of course Peter himself.

Sign up as an IPA member and you can be one of the first to listen to the fascinating story of how Dr Peter Ridd took on the academic establishment and won.
