E030 Gargi Bhattacharyya: Rethinking Racial Capitalism

What are the links between ecological crisis, capitalism and racism? How has racism in the UK changed since the ’70s? And why do celebrities suddenly feel they need to come out as TERFs*? Chantelle and Saskia revel in a bit of Marxism with Gargi Bhattacharyya, who talks to us about her new book Rethinking Racial Capitalism, and we have a think about why the idea of racial capitalism offers more questions than answers. The usual disclaimers about ranting, swearing and laughing apply 😉

E007 The Surviving Society Alternative to Woman’s Hour

This week Chantelle and Saskia launch the first Surviving Society Alternative to Woman’s Hour! Beginning with the comments made by Catherine Deneuve about the #metoo campaign, in this episode we challenge commentators who think experiences of sexual harassment and assault are up for debate and talk about why we should avoid silencing different experiences. We discuss the missing aspects of these conversations like ‘race’, class and trans issues, our own journeys with feminism, and why we need to have a more fluid understanding of what it means to be a woman in contemporary society. Expect the usual strong language, laughter and ranting throughout.
