THIS PODCAST CONTAINS LANGUAGE SOME PEOPLE MAY FIND OFFENSIVE
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 it’s a Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) special. So, joining me to discuss this is journalist and driving force behind the Universal Credit Sufferer website Alex Tiffin. Plus, Mark from the fantastic political DJ act Feminist Jukebox is talking all things musical.

We’re a thorn in the side of the establishment, but we can’t do it without your help
Your fight is our fight. But as many of you will know, speaking truth to power has never been easy, especially for a small, independent media outlet such as the Canary. We have weathered many attempts to silence our vital opposition to an increasingly fascist government and right-wing mainstream media. Now more than ever, we need your support.
We don’t have fancy offices, and our entire staff works remotely. Almost all of our income is spent on paying the people who make the Canary’s content. So your contribution directly supports our team and enables us to continue to do what we do: disrupt power, and amplify people.
But we can’t do this without you. So please, if you appreciate our work, can you help us continue the fight?
