Challenge your assumptions

My favourite podcast of all time. Informative and incisive podcast, with host’s that aren’t afraid to constructively criticise the left.

Superb

One of the best podcasts dedicated to radical politics. Intelligent, accessible and relevant. Regular interviews with Adolph Reed would be very welcome.
