The Owen Jones Podcast

The Owen Jones Podcast

By Owen Jones

Owen Jones, journalist, author of Chavs and The Establishment, or "that left-wing idiot off the telly", is fed up with the establishment media. After all, it punches down, not up, blames minorities for all the problems in society, and, let's face it, often just parrots the government line. So this podcast is offering something different: speaking truth to power, giving the marginalised a voice, offering hope - and having a laugh along the way. From Michael Sheen to Judith Butler, Prof. Devi Sridhar to Noam Chomsky, Peter Hitchens to Chelsea Manning and Gary Younge to Stewart Lee, the interviewees couldn't be more eclectic. Expect documentaries, too, exposing injustice and going to enemy territory - and discussions with experts on everything from COVID dreams about the pandemic to the history of US-backed coups. We'll learn a lot - but above all else, have our optimism in a better world rebooted.

In the meantime they have imposed provisional rulings which, among other things, order Israel to cease killing and maiming Palestinians and provide full access to food, water and humanitarian assistance - all impossible without a ceasefire - and to take action against Israeli leaders and officials who have incited genocide.This ruling has more significance than you think - here is why.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/the-owen-jones-podcast.

Israel 'Worse Than Apartheid': South African Jewish Former ANC Politician Andrew Feinstein

It's rare that I end an interview on the brink of tears, but this was such a powerful interview with former ANC MP Andrew Feinstein. He tells me his family history of surviving the Holocaust - unlike so many of his relatives - and how this informed his struggle against Apartheid.But he tells me why Israel's oppression of the Palestinians is worse than Apartheid, why the anti-apartheid movement is an example to now follow, the silencing of pro-Palestinian voices, South Africa's case against Israel alleging genocide - and why history shows we have a responsibility to speak out.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/the-owen-jones-podcast.

How You Can Help Stop Israel's Carnage In Gaza - And Support Palestinian Liberation

You may have participated in large demos, tweeted about it, peacefully occupied a train station, yelled at your computer screens and TVs, or offloaded on to friends and family - but ultimately felt "there's nothing more to do to stop this genocidal war!"Well there is. I interviewed Omar Barghouti - he's a Palestinian human rights defender, winner of the 2017 Gandhi Peace Award, and co-founder of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement https://bdsmovement.net/.

Damning Truth About Labour Revealed By Martin Forde KC

After the leaked Labour report revealed damning truths about the behaviour of the party's Right, Keir Starmer commissioned leading barrister Martin Forde to conduct a report. Some - myself included - feared a whitewash: but the conclusions were damning, including on factionalism and perceptions of a hierarchy of racism. But Labour have almost entirely failed to engage with Forde over his report - and now he's broken his silence.We speak to Richard Sanders - one of the makers of Al Jazeera's 'Labour Files' - and award winning investigative journalist Peter Oborne.Please read alongside this episode:In July 2020, the Labour party apologised 'unreservedly' and paid a six figure sum to 7 former Labour employees and the BBC journalist who made the 2019 Panorama programme 'Is Labour Anti-Semitic'.Labour said: 'The Labour party is here today to publicly set the record straight, and to apologise to the claimants for the distress and embarrassment it has caused them.'To the BBC journalist: 'The defendant is here to set the record straight and to apologise unreservedly to Mr Ware.'Al-Jazeera was also told: 'The BBC told us it stands by its reporting. John Ware said that he did not recognise Mr Forde's characterisation of his communications. He described Mr Forde's criticisms of Panorama as misleading and inaccurate. Mr Ware also said that Ben Westerman claimed that the 'are you from Israel' comment was made at the end of his meeting with Rica Bird and was not therefore recorded.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/the-owen-jones-podcast.
