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? The searingly good journalist and media consultant Claire Stephenson and the staggeringly talented singer/songwriter artist MIRI.
As always, don’t forget to ‘get involved’ by sharing Topple Uncaged and join the conversation using the hashtag #toppleuncaged on social media.

Cuadrilla’s biggest shareholder, AJL, is losing investors over the #fracking failure in the UK. It’s probably a good move for them to sell-up now before the final toilet flush on the fracking industry comes. Not long now. #UntilWeWin #BanFracking pic.twitter.com/RdP3mi2cLm

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
