On Pride Day – and Pride Month – let’s not forget that no society is truly great if it is not equally accepting and great to everyone. The LGBTQ rights situation around the world might be improving but there’s still a long way to go.

Palestine: The Protests Continue
The protests in and outside of Palestine continue. Why? Because not much has changed, and nothing has improved. We’re seeing the same colonial practices, the same occupation, the same brutality by Israeli forces. In Jerusalem, throughout the West Bank, and all over historic Palestine. I encourage you to speak out against all of this.
What Do We Talk About When We Talk About Palestine? Part 7: Impunity

What Do We Talk About When We Talk About Palestine? Part 4: International Organisations
Human Rights Watch has just released its report on the Israeli policies in the Occupied Territories and in Israel itself. The verdict: these policies make up a system of apartheid.
In my episode, I talk about this report and what broader questions we should ask when it comes to how international organisations assess any Israeli policies.
Black Lives Still Matter, And (Y)our Discomfort Still Doesn’t
It’s a rather reflective episode with a simple message: Black Lives still matter, and our discomfort still doesn’t.
How Free Is Media in Your Country, Really?
What’s the difference between internal plurality and external plurality?
A quick answer: that difference is huge, and it has to deal with media ownership consolidation levels.
