Listen in as host Joe Toscano yarns with a different guest each week about their experience in movements and campaigns for progressive social change.
Van T Rudd
On this week's show we welcome the thorougly nice and thoughtful person, along with exciting political artist, Van T Rudd. Hailing originally from Nambour, Queensland, Van grew up doodling in his school books, surfing and playing 'the world game'. Moving on to study humanities and partying at university, Van had quite a long sting playing in bands in both Queensland and Melbourne. These days, Van enjoys much admiration for his wicked public installations which get right to the heart of the absurdities, corruption and lies inherent within both the political system and capitalism. If you're not familiar with Van's work you must check it out! We thank Van for being our guest this week and sharing some of his formative years with us. It was a real pleasure. Keep being radical, Van!Here are some links Van recommends and to his own sites:van-t-rudd.net / facebook.com/van.t.rudd / @van.nishingSocialist Alternative: sa.org.auVictorian Socialists: victoriansocialists.org.auWorkers Art Collective: @workersartcollective
On this week's show we welcome anti-nuclear organiser and activist AC. Hailing originally from Christchurch, Aotearoa, AC has been active in the peace and anti-nuclear movement for quite some time, having taken part in numerous walks across country and internationally. AC is a member of ACE Nuclear Free Collective at Friends of the Earth (Melbourne), a volunteer with Pay the Rent and a 3CR broadcaster on The Radioactive Show. What a gem! We thank AC for taking time to share some of their life and be our guest this week.

Looking at Radical Australia
This week we invite you to be our guest on the show by looking back through the Radical Australia archives and talking about just what the show is all about. We look forward to you joining us.
Mini Miller (Racerage)
What a delight to have Mini Miller, aka Racerage, as our guest this week. A childhood spent moving around quite a bit, Mini ended up at the end of her teens as dux of her high school. Impressive! Graduating with an ENTER score of 99.1%, Mini went on to study communications and eventually social work. For the last few years Mini has been the rap queen of Collingwood, finding home and communiity there. We had a lot of laughs speaking with Mini. We're sure you'll enjoy the show.

It was fantastic to welcome Ric, aka Pope Fred, onto the program this week. A great guest. What can we say about Ric? He's a spoken word poet, insurrection anarchist, human biology graduate and a Discordia enthusiast, amongst other things. A very interesting person, making for an entertaining conversation. We thank Ric for being our guest this week.plastique-poetry.blogspot.comirlinfoshop.org / @irlinfoshop
We were really honoured to have John Smyth on the show this week. John is a 3CR stalwart, having been invovled in the station since its inception in Armadale. A very long time indeed! John has a breadth of knowledge about all the technical 'stuff' that goes into broadcasting radio and for a long time carried out many of 3CR's outside broadcasts. John has also been hosting 3CR's 'Jazz on a Saturday' during this whole time. He really is a legend. Thanks so much, John, for coming on the show.
