Beyond the Noise: Reaction and resistance - 2018 in review

Beyond the Noise with David Jamieson is a weekly podcast with CommonSpace journalist David Jamieson, where he gets behind the 24/7 news cycle and gets to heart of issues, trying to find the substance behind the headlines.

THIS week, Jamieson is joined by CommonSpace editor Ben Wray and CommonSpace multimedia journalist Rhiannon J Davies to review 2018 in tumultuous global politics and public affairs.

They discuss:

- 1:12 Why the general picture of the world in 2018 is a confirmation of those tendencies which caused panic in 2016 - the collapse of the political centre and polarisation.

- 22:08 Why the Growth Commission is going to become a big issue for the independence movement in 2019.

- 35:20 Why Extinction Rebellion, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Yellow Vests are all reasons to be cheerful at the end of 2018.

- 45:10 How CommonSpace has changed in 2018 and what we want to do in 2019.
