    Douglas Murray: War on the West and Challenging Identity Politics.

    Douglas Murray: War on the West and Challenging Identity Politics.

    Today Lily wants to take a more radical turn on this season’s topic, and share her conversation with renowned political commentator and Author, Douglas Murray. He has written several best selling books - such as The Madness of Crowds, and his most recent book, The War on the West and has been critical of our culture’s increasing focus on gender and race as a way to understand our history and ourselves - which he believes to be dividing our society.
    Is it possible to recognise the issues of race, gender, class and how they connect with inequities today - whilst not fuelling further division in society - but rather focusing on solutions towards the fairer world so many of us want to see?

    Who Cares Wins will be back in 2 weeks where we present the stories of some extraordinary women. In the meantime, we’ll leave you feeling hopeful and inspired with weekly drops of Reasons to Be Optimistic. See you then.

    Will McDonald: Fatherhood Part 2 & Why equality for Fathers will help us all.

    Will McDonald: Fatherhood Part 2 & Why equality for Fathers will help us all.

    Continuing our conversations on Fatherhood this week, Lily chats to Will McDonald from the Father's Institute. They describe themselves as the 'Father's think and do tank'. Will is so insightful into the reasons why having a male influence/ figure in a child's life will not only benefit the Father- child relationship but exponentially help the Mother as well; from helping with breastfeeding, giving equal paternity rights and for their own mental health and wellbeing. A fascinating listen!

    Chris Sweeney: Fatherhood Part 1 & Being Queer/ Male Allyship

    Chris Sweeney: Fatherhood Part 1 & Being Queer/ Male Allyship

    A delightful conversation to share with you today with Podcast royalty, Chris Sweeney. So far in this series of Who Cares Wins, we've heard many different female perspectives and in these next few episodes I want to dig into the male experience - of being queer, of Fatherhood, acknowledging privilege and why equality will benefit us all..
    Chris has taken the podcasting world by storm. Having founded the smash hit Homo Sapiens Podcast with Will Young, Chris Sweeney now hosts solo, inviting all conversations from the LGBTQ+ community, looking at the world from a queer perspective.

Listen to this!

These podcasts are created with love and attention to detail. The guests are top notch, inspiring by their lucidity, intellect and passion. I should emphasize the magnitude of what is at stake here: the biggest existential crisis in human history. A very complex subject indeed. Series Two makes the right decision of focusing on a one to one conversation. The brief insets of information are a bold idea. The whole project is brimming with thoughtful questions and paradigm shifting reflections. A refreshing sense of humour and a staunch believe in life underpins the podcast. Brilliant!

Excellent

Really enjoyed. A broad spectrum of opinions and ideas thoughtfully explored.

Loved and so educational

My first podcast review but inclined to do so as absolutely loved this podcast. Lily is obviously so intelligent and she, unlike many podcast hosts, allows the experts she interviews to share their expertise (I feel many talk over their guests in the attempt to come across clever) she shares her opinion but it’s unbiased and let’s the listener come to their own conclusion with the information presented. Now a big fan of lily and feel more passionately about how we can shape a better future.
