Excellent working-class podcast
Wonderful, thoroughly researched podcast with fascinating guests and a much appreciated working-class perspective.
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!!
Every human in the world should hear this podcast
It’s excellently presented, researched truth and published while being in touch with a local sense of humour for us people.
