The Comma Press have launched a new podcast that will be of interest to social and cultural historians.
The series provides in-depth discussions with the writers and historians behind six of the stories featured in the publisher’s ‘Protest: Stories of Resistance’ anthology.
The first episode, ‘Never Going Underground’, considers LGBT rights and focuses on a 1988 protest march in Manchester. The march was part of a broader campaign against Section 28, the law that forbade the ‘promotion’ of homosexuality in education.
The ‘Stories of Resistance’ anthology involved authors working with historians, philosophers and scientists to explore protest from an interdisciplinary standpoint.
The podcast is available now on iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn and Soundcloud.
