Samhälle och kultur – Storbritannien – Nya podcasts

  • Award-winning BBC journalist Andrew Gold interviews deep and quirky outsiders, such as a Westboro Baptist Church defector and a female Mormon psychopath. Joining the mix are such celebrated thought leaders as feminist Helen Lewis, Lord Daniel Finkelstein and free speech advocate Andrew Doyle.

    The aim is to surprise you with a totally different story every time in this 2x Apple Noteworthy show. One week, we're in a Michigan prison with a man who accidentally killed his girlfriend in a botched suicide, the next we're in Australia with the Coffin Confessor, and then we're in the Andes with a plane-crash survivor who had to eat his friends. The only thing that links them all is their place On the Edge. 

    This is for fans of Louis Theroux, Joe Rogan and Adam Buxton. New episodes every Monday.

  • Do you know your queer history? Ever had questions about gay lifestyle you've been too embarrased to ask?
    This series host, comedian Aaron Twitchen, takes key and current issues from the gay agenda and breaks down their history. Its a comic blend of research, facts and real life stories.

    This series is well reasoned, informed and educated breakdowns of the modern issues affecting queer culture. Its weaved with personal stories and real life examples - watered down with enough pop culture to keep it light and entertaining.

    I used my experiences of coming out, dating and body confidence to shine a light on Transphobia, Blood Donation and Conversion Therapy. I'm proud to finally have realised how to fuse the things I'm passionate about with friends and the way I make people laugh.

  • Hello everyone! Welcome to the podcast Soviet Sex, where I (and other guests along the way) will examine the Soviet Union’s policies about gender, health, and sexuality throughout its almost 75 years of existence. The first few episodes will be just me providing overviews of important health policies and their real life consequences. In future episodes, I’ll be talking to various experts on what I’ll call ‘special topics.’ These are topics that I can’t include in the overview episodes and maybe not an expert on – but other people are! You can email me at sovietsexpodcast@gmail.com, follow and dm at @SexSoviet and or look at the website sovietsexpodcast.wordpress.com where I will upload episodes, provide citations from my podcast research just in case you want to buy or read any of these amazing books and articles, and upload any digital/online sources for people to explore.

Focusing on the differences between the crisis of 1968, which produced the demand for the Right to the City, and the crisis we confront today, he asks: "Is another world not only possible, but realistically attainable" Peter Marcuse has written extensively on housing, urban development, the history of planning, the ethics of planning, racial segregation, and globalization. His most recent publication is "Cities for People, Not for Profit" edited jointly with Neil Brenner and Margit Mayer, a special issue of the journal City: analysis of urban trends, culture, theory, policy (13.2-3, June-September, 2009).
