Podaganda


A weekly show from journalists Steve Sweeney, Ben Cowles and their Morning Star comrades, Podaganda is the podcast the corporate media warned you about: It's adversarial, sweary and profoundly left-wing.

Nov 8, 2019

IN episode nine of Podaganda journalists Ben Cowles and Steve Sweeney are joined by their Morning Star colleague Kadeem Simmonds to discuss:

  • General Election 2019 (1.40)
  • Footballers defending billionaires against Labour (16:36)
  • Anti-neoliberal protests around the world (24:48)
  • And the Joker from a leftwing perspective (Spoilers!)(37:48)

As always brace yourself for profoundly left-wing views and plenty of bad language
