With the Euro’s and the lifting of restrictions we’ve had a bit of a delay in pod content but we hope to continue to steady get episodes out as the months roll by.

 

This episode we were joined by Ant Lehane to chat about drug policy in the U.K and what reform/legalisation would practically look like. Ant is Head of Comms for Volte Face and the Secretariat for the Labour Campaign for Drug Policy Reform. Checkout their work on the links below 👇

A really important chat with Matt Zarb-Cousin on this week’s episode. Matt’s campaign work within the gambling industry has been incredible and serves as a blueprint for all activists looking to force change in society.

 

Matt is the director of Clean Up Gambling & the Coalition Against Gambling Ads who both do incredible work.

 

As Jeremy Corbyn’s former spokesman we also had a short chat at the end of the episode about the current situation in the Labour Party.

Thought we’d have a quick chat about the last 24 hours for Labour, their long-term decline and the future of the progressive politics. Lot to fit in for an off the cuff 50 minute episode but as always we give it a good go.

We’ve had a break but we’re gonna be back chatting regular shite for a few weeks again. We wanted to start back with a last orders and we go through Kill the Bill, the Derek Chauvin trial, Labour (again) and finish on a lovely bit of conspiracy theory chat.

 

Enjoy ❤️

Red_in_the_Face-59muw0.jpg

Morgan and Dan dive into international issues again this week as they are joined by Rob Miller to discuss Cuba.

 

Rob is the Director of the Cuba Solidarity Campaign which is a British organisation that campaigns against the illegal blockade of Cuba among a whole host of other things.

 

We chatted with Rob about Cuba pre and post revolution, the crippling effects of the blockade and discussed the incredible work Cuba continues to do under incredible external pressure.

 

Solidarity with the Cuban people in their struggle to be freed from foreign intervention 🇨🇺✊
