    Anyone else here a fan? It's a political podcast from two old school mates that covers the clusterfuck of cronyism that is Welsh (mostly Welsh Labour) politics, with a nice bit of theory and history to boot. Recent shows have covered the Rebecca Riots, Pierre Bourdieu and class and gentrification.

    I've been back home in Cardiff for the past year after having spent 10 years away so I've really appreciated hearing some like-minded people who share my anger at how Wales is being mismanaged and generally fucked over by our betters, and just the general blandness of what life can be like here. I think what they do is also important as we criminally lack a critical media here, BBC Wales and Wales Online are just a joke.

    Anyways, check them out if you've not done so already!

    Over a year I think, hoping they do a few more theory episodes to help peeps like me who can never be arsed reading at source.

    I like them so much I bought the T shirt :thumbs:
    Seriously, even when I disagree with them, it's so important and refreshing to have someone examining and discussing Welsh politics, especially from a left viewpoint. They're good on Twitter if you're on that time sink. Their utter disdain for Cardiff Council is a constant pleasure.

    I saw someone wearing their t-shirt in Cornwall over the summer, but it was only a few days later that I clicked what it was. I would have pulled them if my brain was fully functioning
