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.
