These are radical times. In a truly turbulent year, the Begin The World Over Again podcast brought together artists and writers to delve into the archives and stories held within Salford's Working Class Movement Library. Exploring collective action, gender equality and women's rights, the welfare state, public access to green spaces, racial discrimination and more; what can we learn from the radical thoughts and actions of the past to prompt new thinking for today? Because as the activist Thomas Paine said in 1776, “We have it in our power to begin the world over again.” From October 2022 episodes will no longer be available on podcast platforms but will be free to listen to at https://www.mixcloud.com/wcmlibrary/
