The death of a year of deaths… and we look at Liberty!
It’s a bumper December episode… take your time, savour and reflect and then troll us on Twitter – where we are opening our Activists Advent…
On this episode, themed around Liberty, we have the former guitarist with Stiff Little Fingers, Henry Cluney, on the politics in his and the bands songs, Debra Torrance on Takin’ a liberty, Eric Joyce and Neil Scott with very different takes on Fidel Castro and Matt Geraghty with “A Monster Calls”.
Dr Bruce Scott talks to us about Free Speech and the Liberation of the Psyche, Joe Solo on a song that should be in your Christmas songlist, and on liberty. Julie Bindel discusses the international sex trade, Chuck Hamilton talks about bisexuality from the point of view of a bisexual, Amber Daniels on the liberation of extreme self consciousness, Mara Leverkuhn on fake news.
