Welcome to series two of #ToppleUncaged!
Every week, The Canary will be bringing you a new podcast on the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.
In a special episode, I caught up with Ross Standaloft, who is one half of UK rap duo Too Many T’s. They have recently released Boris Next Door, an inspired political track about Mr Johnson. And yes, Ross does indeed live next door to our possible future prime minister. The song is a genius mix of humorous observations about Johnson, but also a stinging criticism of him, his views and his record.
So, I chatted with Ross about Boris Next Door, the state of UK politics, what Too Many T’s have been up to since they last came on the #ToppleUncaged podcast and more.

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.
