Welcome to series two of #ToppleUncaged!
Every week, The Canary will be bringing you an innovative podcast for the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.
You’ll get my quick fire round-up of the news in Topple’s Twittering. Then, I’ll be going in on a story or campaign you may have missed, with a very special guest, on Free Flying With… After that, you get to have your say on the week’s talking points in Twitter Chirps Back. And finally, I’ll be bringing you the freshest, most banging political music in Revolutionary Bird Song.

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.
