Step Aside Brother

This unintentionally woman-heavy episode of Ungagged, introduced by Neil Anderson,  is themed around "Step Aside Brother," but of course we are Ungagged, so not all of us have kept to the theme.
Thomas Morris will be talking about how sometimes brothers don't step aside once they've got what they want, Chuck Hamilton will discuss bi-erasure, neoliberalism, and the importance of slaying your gods, and Damanvir Kaur will give us an update Jagtar Singh Johal, the Scot imprisoned in an Indian jail.
Debra Torrance will be joining us twice - once to deliver a piece on behalf of the showmen at Feltnam, who feel silenced by their councillor as their home is threatened, and then again with a piece of her own, asking how many people are reached and persuaded by shouty men yelling slogans into a microphone.
Em Dehaney will be talking about gendered language, and how it subtly shapes our perceptions of feminism, Julie will be along to talk about representation for women and young people within the Yes Movement, and Ruth Hopkins will be talking about Kavanaugh.
Laura Lundahl will be talking about why developed countries need to step aside in developing ones, Catriona Stevenson will be talking about land reform, Victoria Pearson will be sharing a poem called Stand Aside Brother, that she wrote for this episode, and our Raiph will be wondering if Wee Vinny is a spy…
With music from The Franklys, Alexander Martin, ArgonautThe Babel Fish Project, Jackal Trades, LUV DOT GOV, Precious McKenzie, Sharon MartinSteve McAuliffe & The Mighty Ur, The Empty Page, The Menstural Cramps and David Rovics.

Krassivy

For timings, go to our website, www.leftungagged.org or our Twitter account twitter.com/_ungagged

 

From Vanuatu’s Independence day, through butterfly conservation, Australian Prime Ministers, and a brief history of Capitalism, through to the apocalypse (with a few stops in between), the Ungagged collective are talking Krassivy…

The Ungagged Collective are inspired this episode by the theme “Krassivy”, beautiful red, but as always, we haven’t all stayed on theme.

Last month saw Vanuatu celebrate their independence day, just as Thomas Morris was visiting, so he will tell us all about that, Nelly Neal will be along to talk about The Diggers, and land ownership, Laura Lundahl will be taking a meander through how three countries manage socialist ideas, and George Collins will be lamenting the unwillingness of many U.S. journalists to risk their careers for the truth and the effects on the overall quality of news in the corporate media.

Chuck Hamilton will be talking about social class in America and giving us a brief history of capitalism, Derek Stewart Macpherson discusses his home town of Clydebank, and promises to explain to why Australia has had seven Prime Ministers in just eleven years, Red Raiphtalks about the people’s vote campaign in Scotland, and travelling within the EU, and Rachael Horwitz discusses reasons for the decline in the UK’s butterfly population, and how you can help.

Debra Torrance and Victoria Pearson are both (separately) talking about the apocalypse, after Theresa May’s insistence that this isn’t the end of the world left them worried. Debra presents a light hearted look at the many and varied types of apocalypse we might suffer, while V focuses on how to survive economic brexitocalpse.

With music from The Wakes, Steve McAuliffe & The Mighty Ur, Zoe MacPherson, Rufio G, Mullen, Marshall Chipped, Joe Solo, Jackal Trades, The Cundeez, The Kara Sea, The Hurriers, and Attila the stockbroker.

Pulled together, kicking and screaming, by Neil Anderson, with cat herding support from Neil Scott and Victoria Pearson.
