The four quirky anti-heroes who starred in one of the most defining television shows of the ’90s take centre stage in this episode of Campion Conversations.

What is Seinfeld actually about? Is it a show about nothing, as it meta-textually suggests in Season 4? Are the characters simply just high-functioning sociopaths? And does the humour still hold up 20 years on?

Hear what we thought, with three special guests: literature lecturer Dr Stephen McInerney, history lecturer Dr Steve Chavura and philosophy lecturer Dr Amitavo Islam.
