What is the British referendum about and how do the Brits feel about the EU? Whom do Europeans listen to, and what is the role of intellectuals in the public debate? Are the media losing their authority? What is the position of global media in shaping opinions about the world? Do we need new civilisational myths? In the special edition of Večera s Havranom, recorded in London, Michal Havran hosted Anne Applebaum (2004 Pulitzer Prize laureate), Keith Lowe (writer, Savage Continent: Europe in the Aftermath of World War II), and Stephen Sackur (host of BBC's Hard Talk).
