51: Double-guest special with FEMI from OFOC and BILLY BRAGG
It’s inefficient Euro-socialist overmanning time as we present a special, super-extended episode of Remainiacs with not one but TWO special guests.
First the fantastic FEMI OLUWOLE of youth campaign Our Future Our Choice tells us why he gave up a promising career to fight Brexit, how young people are the ones who can turn this mess around… and why everyone turns into a worse version of themselves on social media.
Then the legend that is BILLY BRAGG comes in to explain some hard truths about the working class concerns that led to Brexit, why we should be making the case to remain and reform… and play us some tunes from his current album ’Bridges Not Walls’ too. Hold tight for one-off renditions of ‘England, Half English’ and (yes) ’Full English Brexit’.
Plus: The latest round-up of Theresa May’s miserable performance on the Customs Union and Windrush. Is Thanos from ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ really a Brexiter? And should we be listening to the legitimate concerts of voters in Ward/Area?
“We’ve got to remember that Leavers voted to make the country better too. And when you ask them how it’s going, they think it’s going really badly…”
This week’s REMAINIACS is presented by Dorian Lynskey with Ian Dunt and Naomi Smith. Audio production: Jack Claramunt. Producer: Andrew Harrison. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.
