    So, is our land harming or HEALING us?

    So, is our land harming or HEALING us?

    Last episode, we explored what it means to belong to land - to find safety, to feel settled, to lay down roots and build a life. Building on this foundation, in this episode we are exploring what it means to go beyond survival and begin to find healing.

    With climate change at the top of the world's political agenda, we're increasingly becoming aware of the damage and destruction that we are causing to the planet. We've heard the cries for us to stop and heal the earth - but in that process can we also heal ourselves? Are they synonymous? Or does one lead to the other? 

    We put these questions to Farzana Khan, from Healing Justice, and Nicki Myers from Disabled People Against Cuts.

    So, where on Earth do we BELONG?

    So, where on Earth do we BELONG?

    Last episode we investigated what it means to have a transient relationship to land - to constantly roam, to migrate to another place, or even to be forcibly displaced. In Chapter 2 of our land series, we're exploring the opposite. Looking at what it means to belong to a specific place. And what impact a sense of belonging to and connection with land has on us emotionally, physically, materially, politically and socially.

    Taking it beyond the capitalist notion of land belonging to us, we challenge the existing frameworks of ownership and power over land and try to establish what it is that gives us a meaningful relationship with the land that we occupy - and subsequently - to each other as a human race.

    We go on this important and thought provoking journey with activist, Javier Sanchez-Rodriguez, from Anne Matthews Trust and Design Researcher, Andre Reid, from Kiondo.

    So, what makes us MOVE from land to land?

    So, what makes us MOVE from land to land?

    Movement is a central part of (human) life. For some of us, it is fuelled by excitement and represents adventure or freedom. For others, it is fuelled by fear and represents a chance at survival.

    Regardless of the cause of our movement, we all seek some sort of safe land upon arrival - to live, rest, feed, grow and thrive. Whether that land be temporary or permanent, none of us is exempt from this need.

    In this episode, we're exploring different forms of movement and investigating how they affect our relationship both with land and with one another. Join us as we speak to Showman, Tyler Hatwell, from Traveller Pride and Diasporan,  Sam Siva, from Land in Our Names (LION).

    So, who is LAND really for?

    So, who is LAND really for?

    Apparently not many of us. The majority of the land that we occupy is out of bounds - a massive 92% of our countryside and 97% of our rivers are hidden behind "no trespassing", "no public access" and "private property" signs. But who controls what land, for how long, for what purposes and for whose benefit, is all central to shaping our lives. Intrinsically linked to every other element, from our access to food, to the jobs we work, where (or if) we go to school and even how likely we are to get arrested.

    In the 90th year since the landmark Kinder Scout Mass Trespass, we're speaking to voices at the forefront of the land justice movement to discover what fair access for all looks like and how we might get there. In this intro episode, we share some snippets from this journey from movement, to belonging, to healing, until we reached abundance. Featuring conversations with Disabled People Against Cuts, Traveller Pride, Land in Our Names, Healing Justice,  Anne Matthews Trust, London Renters Union and KIONDO.

    Climate & Youth

    Climate & Youth

    Young people are the face of the climate movement, both in who we are shown and who the messaging is targeted at. 

    In this episode we investigate this heightened interest amongst young people, asking whether it is a natural part of the optimism of youth or it has come about through necessity. And explore the consequences of placing this weight on young shoulders.

    To do this, we’re speaking to young people who are fighting for change across two different continents.

    Climate & Recuperation

    Climate & Recuperation

    Many of the solutions for preventing rapid climate change, and tackling its adverse effects, exist within Indigenous cultures and practices. For decades, they've been routinely dismissed and ignored. Now that there is an increased urgency, this ancient wisdom is being commercialised - repackaged for sale without acknowledgement of where it originated.

    In this episode, we give this process a name: Recuperation. And we explore what happens when radical ideas are adopted and diluted by mainstream culture. 

    To do this, we're chatting to two organisations that celebrate the contributions of Ancient and Indigenous cultures, create authentic spaces for learning and give a platform to marginalised voices.

Claire De R ,

Informative, inspiring and easy to digest

Untelevised has managed to do what so many have failed at: making political and ethical issues digestible and relatable. The hosts and their guests explore complex topics in a way that is engaging and inspiring, with humanity and without a hint of judgement.
I recommend this podcast to anyone who has any interest in bettering the world around them in any way. I look forward to each episode!

Definitely sub and listen

Very informative and needed to encourage lasting change. The interviewees are very inspiring and spurs you to do more.
I also like the learn section, interesting to see what they choose to teach in each episode.
