118 – Owen Jones

Owen Jones is an activist (first) and celebrated writer (second). He’s the author of bestselling books Chavs: The Demonisation of the Working Class and The Establishment And How They Get Away With It, is a regular Guardian columnist and has a cracking YouTube channel. He’s a major Leftist voice in UK politics and quite frankly, I was pretty stoked when he agreed to give me some of his time.

Here we talk about democratic socialism, what Corbyn’s political rise means for that cause, the dangers of centrism and the basics of Brexit. We also touch on what defines the “working class”, being friends with Tories and Owen’s cat.
