Watch: Sean Plunket's full interview with Jordan Peterson

Dr Jordan Peterson spoke to Magic Talk's Sean Plunket on Thursday.

Appearing via video link, the Canadian psychology professor and author touched on a number of controversial topics, including gender quotas and his representation by the media. He also spoke to callers who rang in with their questions.

Dr Peterson has taught psychology at the University of Toronto since 1998. He made a name for himself in 2016 when he began uploading videos about why he would not use the preferred pronouns of transgender students.

In the years since he has remained a highly polarising figure, commanding a cult following around the world. His political and social views have been criticised by progressives as well as other academics.

He will arrive in New Zealand next week for his 12 Rules For Life speaking tour.
