Guided by the Broadbent Principles for Social Democracy, the Perspectives podcast presents commentary, interviews and peer-reviewed analysis to help inform strategists, organizers, academics, and policymakers of the theory, ideas, and practice that can be used to build a just and equitable world. On empowering workers, climate action, and decommodification, Perspectives draws on expertise in these fields for critical analysis of political economy and public policy.
