Listen on

Episode notes

Why is it so hard to imagine a world without coppers? In this special episode, Novara Media reporter Rivkah Brown examines how the blue tentacles of police power creep into our daily lives and invade our minds. We hear the shocking stories of Bea, a left-wing activist who discovered her ex was a police spy, and Judah Adunbi, whose years as a race adviser to the Bristol police didn’t stop them from Tasering him on his doorstep. Later in the episode, Rivkah invites writer and researcher Annie Olaloku-Teriba and Dr Adam Elliott-Cooper, author of Black Resistance to British Policing, to consider these stories, and whether the #KillTheBill movement might finally free us from carceral logic.
