Show Notes


This week on the show we are joined by Kai Heron (@KaiHeron). Kai is a lecturer in  Politics at Manchester University, writing on political economy with a focus on land struggles and climate change.  We discuss why Land use and public ownership of land is a key plank of a meaningful GND, How a GND could be jumping off point for our socialist utopias and if theological frameworks are necessary to build lasting social movements.
