So this is a special podcast since there are a bunch of elections in the UK on 5th May, I’ve themed it so all the songs are political, whilst there are a few speeches dotted throughout, a bit of Bill Hicks, and a couple of mini rants by me. It is everything you wanted to be listening to as you walked to the polling booth on Thursday, how could you have voted without it?
So, here are the twitter feeds you should be following: PennyRed, NewStatesman, NaomiKlein, DaleFarm, Mehdi Hassan, UKUncut, Michael Moore, Republic Staff, tenderhooligan, JohannHari, FalseEcon, Peter Tatchell, Shelter. Apologies if any of the spellings are wrong but if you search for them you will find them. All have a cool political message so follow and learn.
So listen here:
