Welcome to #ToppleUncaged!

Every week, The Canary will be bringing you an innovative podcast for the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.

I’ve got a two-part treat for you because I had the opportunity to interview one of the most important artists of a generation: Micah Shemaiah. Here’s part two. You can listen to part one here.

Mr Topple x Micah Shemaiah: Part Two

Micah’s been one of the most prolific and influential roots reggae artists of recent years. Searingly conscious, musically ingenious and with a stunning back catalogue to boot, he has blazed a trail in terms of message music. Moreover, Micah is a passionate advocate of vinyl, leading the way in promoting this form of music release. But it is perhaps his worldview which is most profound. Micah is a highly skilled orator with a staggering depth of thought. He is currently set to release The Forgotten Scrolls, a three-part series of vinyl music.

So, I caught up with him for a two-part special of the #ToppleUncaged podcast. In this, part two, we discussed 21st-century society, the impact of corporations on all of our existences, how music can be a catalyst for change and more.

Enjoy!

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?
