    This is Fear of Missing Out: young people living in the UK talking about the stuff we wish we learnt at school.

As the debate rages over a second Referendum on Scottish Independence, Tom and Mikaela look back at Scotland’s recent political history - the 1979, 1997 and 2014 referendums - to try and work out how they might vote in the future.

    This is Fear of Missing Out: young people living in the UK talking about the stuff we wish we learnt at school.

    India is a 21 year old student, content creator and activist from Bath. India is passionate about her activism, which focuses on anti-racism and intersectional feminism. But, often, India kind of feels like they're just making things up as they go along? India interviews four activists involved in actions in the 1980s - the Greenham Common Peace Camp, The Miners Strike, Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners and The Toxteth Uprising - to make her very own ‘How To’ Guide to Activism.

    India speaks to Anna Wates, Sue Say, Ian Mitchell, Mike Jackson, Jimi Jagne and Nim Ralph.
