Please support All Hail To The Pod, a weekly podcast from Cowgate Media on the politics of working class life. We talk to musicians, academics, writers and activists as we explore history, current affairs, politics, culture and more from a working class perspective.

The Pod is primarily hosted by Jim Slaven. Recently the Pod was hosted by feminist and socialist writer Cat Boyd. We encourage partnership working and wish to create diverse, interesting and inclusive Pods and will continue to give space to a varied range of working class and progressive voices. Either as guests or hosts.

Jim Slaven is an Edinburgh based writer, activist and founding member of the James Connolly Society. With 30 years’ experience of activism. His current research looks at the intersection between race, nation and class. He is founder of 107 Cowgate, whose events, tours and media explore Edinburgh’s history and future from a working class perspective. He tweets: @JimSlaven.

Within six weeks we have over 1,000 unique downloads each show and counting. There is an appetite for hearing progressive working class voices. We need your support so we can keep developing this Pod and give the marginalised and silenced a voice.

Where does the money go? All money raised will go to cover the costs of equipment, training and hosting. We plan to include video, record live shows and conduct interviews at events. To do that we need to buy new, more powerful equipment. All people involved in the Pod are volunteers. We want to create opportunities for people, especially young people, to develop their skills and build knowledge through their involvement in the Pod. We are committed to providing our volunteers with the very best of training. Equipment, training and hosting costs money.

In 2019, as well as the benefits of each tier, we will be creating additional material for patrons and offering advance shows for patrons.

Our name is a play on the James Connolly quote:
"All hail to the mob, the incarnation of progress!"
