Welcome to Surviving Society!

We are Chantelle, Saskia and Tissot, and we are fed up with the mainstream conversations taking place around politics and current affairs. Every episode, we each pick a topic that has made us angry, either from the news or from our daily lives, and talk about why it matters from a sociological perspective. Through public sociology, we want to challenge common-sense understandings of ‘race’, class, and gender, and to show how entrenched inequalities shape both political conversations and individual experiences.

All our episodes are accessible, entertaining, and free to download! Whether you’re a social science buff or a complete newbie, Surviving Society helps you to cope with uncertain political times by looking at everything from a sociological perspective.
