    This week, Grace speaks to Milena Ansari, international advocacy officer at Addameer (https://www.addameer.org/), the Palestinian prisoner support and human rights organization.

interesting and insightful.

Absolutely great podcast with very good analysis and discussions.

Interesting, but not accessible

The podcast’s host and their guests discuss political philosophy from a left-wing — often Marxist — perspective. Topics are interesting, however the conversations can be a bit dry. The discussion presumes you have some basic understanding of Marxist terminology. Personally I think the episodes could be shorter and more accessible, but maybe I’m missing the point!

Inspiring politics

This is one of the most optimistic podcasts to spring from the left since the last general election.
