Owen Jones, journalist, author of Chavs and The Establishment, or "that left-wing idiot off the telly", is fed up with the establishment media. After all, it punches down, not up, blames minorities for all the problems in society, and, let's face it, often just parrots the government line. So this podcast is offering something different: speaking truth to power, giving the marginalised a voice, offering hope - and having a laugh along the way. From Michael Sheen to Judith Butler, Prof. Devi Sridhar to Noam Chomsky, Peter Hitchens to Chelsea Manning and Gary Younge to Stewart Lee, the interviewees couldn't be more eclectic. Expect documentaries, too, exposing injustice and going to enemy territory - and discussions with experts on everything from COVID dreams about the pandemic to the history of US-backed coups. We'll learn a lot - but above all else, have our optimism in a better world rebooted.

Great!

Owen is an amazing journalist and advocate. I have really appreciated his work during these difficult times. His integrity and humanity has really helped me cope with the horrors of the day .

Great podcasts with insightful guests

Great podcast to listen to if you have interest in hearing out the different views in the Middle East currently. He has had some great guests such as Gideon Levy. Thank you for using your platform. Sorry about these people lowering your rating because they are unable to tolerate their government being criticized.

Cockney Insanity

A seething Israel hater; Hamas, Islamic Jihadist apologist with the the silliest, most insufferable Cockney (or something equally unintelligible) accent on any podcast. Enjoy you likeminded morons.
