Novara Media / Downstream: The Year In Review

Listen on

Episode notes

Nearly 12 months ago some said that we were on the verge of entering a new Roaring ’20s. How prescient they turned out to be.

Did Boris Johnson’s landslide breathe a new lease of life into the Conservative Party? Has coronavirus changed politics for a decade? What does the explosive rise of BLM mean for the anti-racist cause?

Downstream hosts Ash Sarkar and Aaron Bastani are joined by #NovaraFM’s James Butler to review 2020 and what comes next.
