THIS PODCAST CONTAINS LANGUAGE SOME PEOPLE MAY FIND OFFENSIVE
Welcome to #ToppleUncaged!
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 fantastic editor of grassroots Unity News, Lizzie Fletcher, and the sensational singer/songwriter Junior Morgan.

How on earth can @dwppressoffice continue to hold the line that @dwp is not a catastrophically failing department?

This is what solidarity looks like! Striking homecare workers in #Unison have joined with striking bin workers in #Unite on picket lines in Birmingham this morning. Fighting back together against attacks from Birmingham council. Unity is strength!@UNISONBham @UniteWestMids pic.twitter.com/tz3kdVe1JU

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?
