In February, Comma launched their brand new digital project, The Comma Press Podcast which is available now on iTunes, Spotify, TuneIn, Stitcher and Soundcloud: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-comma-press-podcast/id1450808051
Series One of the podcast focuses on their best-selling Protest: Stories of Resistance anthology, a collection of retellings of key moments in British protest history, and episodes will feature the author and their historical consultant from the collection, alongside a third guest who will be connected to the cause or movement.
Episode #3 of The Comma Press Podcast, released this Wednesday, the 17th April, in which author Martyn Bedford is in discussion with David Waddington, a researcher of policing public disorder and Craig Oldham, a campaigner for Orgreave Truth and Justice; about the story he wrote for the Protest anthology, ‘Withen’, based on The Battle of Orgreave in 1984. This episode features consideration on police tactics in relation to not only Orgreave but also the Hillsborough tragedy, the miners’ strike on film, Thatcher and ultimately the legacy of Orgreaves.
Part of the importance of this project lies in remembering our previous outcries against injustice, and to highlight where such action is still needed in the present day.
As our cause is fighting for representation of those who fell victim to police brutality during the events at Orgreave in June of 1984, Comma Press thought our followers could find this podcast a topic of interest.
