Welcome to Topple Uncaged!

Every week The Canary will be bringing you a new podcast on the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.

I’ll be giving you the quickest news round up in the UK in Plucked News. Then, I’ll be going in on some of the biggest stories with a very special guest on Free Flying With… After that, I’ll be taking apart, and taking down, this week’s #bbcqt in Question Time: Topple Chirps Back. And finally, I’ll be bringing you the freshest, most banging political music in Revolutionary Bird Song.

This week’s guests? Legendary lawyer and campaigner Peter Stefanovic, and the incredible rapper and activist Lowkey.

As always, don’t forget to ‘get involved’ by sharing Topple Uncaged and join the conversation using the hashtag #toppleuncaged on social media.

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
