Enthusiastic response to new podcast

As we go to press episode four of 'Socialism: the podcast of the Socialist Party' has just been published. Many were pleased to hear that the Socialist Party's publications are expanding to this new media. Sam thinks a podcast is "just what we need." Pedro added a simple "yes!"
Episode four is discussing the far right, following on from our three launch episodes on socialism, politics in Britain today, and antisemitism.
Our listeners are enjoying the content so far. Paul commented that it's an "excellent resource for the Socialist movement." Josie said that all the episodes so far have been "excellently produced and very informative."
We've enjoyed hearing about where you're listening. Adam said: "This is a great idea, look forward to listening to them while I work" and Nancy followed a suggestion in episode one - "I did indeed do it while washing up. It was fabulous and made domestic drudgery more bearable."
Kris points out you can listen anywhere: "Listen to socialist analysis at work, study and on the go!"
Hopefully the podcasts will be interesting and informative for all. And they can also be useful. When we published episode four William said: "I'm doing a Socialist Student lead off about this very subject, thanks!"

Coronavirus crisis - Finance appeal
The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.
The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.
The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.
- The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
- Our 'fighting coronavirus workers' charter', outlines a programme to combat the virus and protect workers' living conditions.
- When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our special coronavirus appeal.
