This fortnight, we'll be taking a sneak peek at a new podcast, and then delving back in time to International Tenants' Day 2016. We talked about the joys and troubles of being a tenant, and the ways that issues around insecure housing and the imbalance of power in a tenant-landlord relationship can adversely affect marginalised groups such as the queer community. The episode was lost in the archives, but has just been unearthed. If you're a tenant or ever have been, you might want to listen as Nicky puts her Lipster and Tenant Union hats on at the same time.
(What is the sound of two hats, anyhow?)
Plus! Fresh to this podcast, never heard before, some more FNLS cat chat!
Note: We apologise for the 'archive' (ie, not very good) quality of some of the Tenants' Day part of the show. It is an artefact of the studio equipment of the time, and we only had limited resources to clean it up.
