RODRIGUERAS ,

Excellent working-class podcast

Wonderful, thoroughly researched podcast with fascinating guests and a much appreciated working-class perspective.

iyacath! ,

Quickly becoming one of my favourite podcasts!

This show covers a great range of international topics, and successfully links them all to working class solidarity, which makes for such an interesting listen. Also, the host (so sorry, I haven’t caught their name!) is probably the most enthusiastic interviewer ever!!
