This week we’re listening to poets, spoken word artists, activists and musicians who are changing hearts and minds with their art. Movements for change and justice come alive in the mouths of artists, and it’s a well known fact that a perfectly delivered rhyme can impart understanding in a way that a lecture never can.
The themes in this episode range from colonialism, climate change, Aboriginal sovereignty, nationalism, nuclear disaster, direct action and love on the frontlines.
