Paul Doughty ,

Highly recommended

One of the best podcasts about organising and social movements you’ll come across. Great format, great production and great stories. Easy and enjoyable to listen to, yet explores issues in great depth from the perspective of those standing up to the powerful.

Crucial conversations for the times we live in. Thank you!

As a young change maker, learning from people who have been creating social change for some time is essential. Thank you!

Helpful for teaching community organisers

As a community organiser in Queensland this is super helpful in thinking through creative ways of taking action in coalition and understanding the operation of power across different contexts. Podcasts are great for us because we can listen to them in the car between meetings and learn the lessons in a simple way! I easily recommend them to leaders because it’s accessible for them and easy to understand
