On this episode, introduced by Victoria Pearson, first time Ungagger Jessica Maybury is coming on to talk about the repeal the 8th movement, Sandra Webster will be discussing carers and nurses, the backbone of our health service, and Debra Torrance will be talking about the plight of the showman who are being forced from their homes because their land can be more profitable for the council without them on it. You can read Debra's piece here.
We have a bit of a women travelling theme this episode with first time Ungagger Seanna Fallon sharing her personal experiences as a solo female traveller, Teresa Durran, who managed to record despite jet lag and being full of cold, talking about her recent trip to new Zealand, and Thomas Morris talking about some of the remarkable female travellers he has met as a backpacker.
No Ungagged episode would be complete without Red Raiph, so he'll be along to share his thoughts on International Women's Day, Chuck Hamilton will be talking about women who are his heroes, and another first time Ungagger, Nelly Neal, will be talking about the reality of teaching for women.
Em Dehaney will be sharing a fabulously furious feminist rant, Brian Quail will be talking about his incarceration following his disruption of the trident nuclear convoy, Derek Stewart Macpherson will be asking who holds the (literal) power, and George Collins will be talking Brazilian jujitsu and Kenyan politics.
We'll have all of that plus Neil Anderson and friends performing the winner of our winter short story competition - A Lefty Winters Tale, by Anthony Franks, and music from Steve McAuliffe & The Mighty Ur, The Wimmins Institute, Petrol Girls, Dream Nails, Madame So, Grace Petrie, The Kara Sea, Ethical Debating Society, Desperate Journalist, The Tuts, Sharon Martin and Gallows Circus.
With thanks to Neil Scott, for pulling the whole thing together.
