Belarus Rising – plus Lights! Kamala! Action!
As Belarus fights its way towards true democracy, we speak to a protestor who’s on the ground in Minsk about what’s really happening and what we can do to help. Plus: Can Kamala Harris thread her way past hard right lies, sexism, racism and a left that can’t be satisfied? Plus ‘Leftwaffe’, ‘Starmtroopers’ and our least favourite political neologisms. Special guest Marie Le Conte joins us to discuss these weighty matters – plus the horrific Politics Gossip Drought of 2020.
- “We’re governed by unexceptional people from exceptional schools.” – Dorian Lynskey
