Welcome to Topple Uncaged meets… Lisa Mckenzie.

Topple meets Mckenzie

She is a working class author, academic and ethnographer. Her book Getting By, a study of her own estate St Ann’s in Nottingham, was a groundbreaking work that cemented her status as one of the pivotal thinkers of the decade. So, Canary journalist and broadcaster Steve Topple caught up with McKenzie for the Topple Uncaged podcast. Here you can listen to the full interview, where the pair discuss immigration, Brexit, class, housing, Windrush, our failing capitalist system and more.


Presented, produced and edited by Steve Topple.

Sound engineering by Gav Pauze.

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.
