In this episode, we’re joined by Heather Welch, the leader of our chapter in Wellington, New Zealand. Heather and other members of the Wellington chapter curated our listening list on Nuclear Power. For the last 8 years, Heather has lived off the grid and documents her off-grid journey on her podcast, Sunshine & PowerCuts.
Power Corrupts is a podcast about the hidden, and often nefarious forces that shape our world. Some of the topics the show covers include election rigging, money laundering, and the spread of disinformation. In this interview, we talk to Brian Klaas, the creator behind Power Corrupts, to find out more about the show.
Earlier this year, the National Trust launched Women and Power, a five part podcast series which delves into the rarely-told stories of women’s voting rights in the UK. The story of female votes in the UK tends to centre on the actions of the militant suffragettes in the UKs capital city, but this is just a fraction of the story. The full story of the Suffrage movement involved women and men from all classes, and from across the British Isles, playing their part in the fight for equality in a multitude of ways.
