Best of BetterPod: Will Poulter, Laura Bates, Darren McGarvey, Sophia Smith Galer and more

BetterPod Best of series one

In series one of BetterPod, we’ve challenged poverty and inequality, homelessness, institutional misogyny, and conspiracy theories. We’ve discovered the perils of social media, the forces behind gun violence in America, and the problems with sex education in UK schools.

In this final episode, Sophie Dimitrijevic, Katerina Sivitanides, Jade Kabaku and Laura Kelly take a look back at the best moments from series one, and finish up by talking through the actions they’ll all be taking today to make tomorrow better. Hopefully you’ll find some tips in there too.

Featuring conversations with Will Poulter, Laura Bates, Darren McGarvey, Sophie Howe, Jonn Elledge, Ariel Hobbs, Brett Staniland, Sophia Smith Galer and Symeon Brown.

BetterPod is brought to you by The Big Issue’s Future Generations team. Through the Future Generations team, we offer a platform for exciting young journalists from underrepresented backgrounds to address the biggest issues facing us today.
