Sonia Sodha is chief leader writer at the Observer and deputy opinion editor at the Guardian. At university she was a vocal campaigner for free higher education, but has since changed her position.
Host Alison Goldsworthy talks to Sodha about her volte-face on higher education and the role of the media in making it hard for politicians to radically shift their views.
