CommonSpace caught up with journalist and author Paul Mason in Glasgow on Thursday [16 May]
PAUL MASON talked to CS journalist David Jamieson about his new book, ‘Clear Bright Future: A radical defence of the Human Being’, and how his belief in radical humanism relates to the politics of Britain and Scotland in the Brexit crisis.
Mason and Jamieson discuss:
00:00 - 11:56: The case for radical humanism, and what sort of emancipatory politics is dervied from that perspective
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.
IN THIS week's podcast Jamieson is joined by Alistair Davidson, a tech worker who has written on digital sovereignty and the implications for capitalism of the digital revolution.

COMMONSPACE hosts monthly forums on the last Thursday of each month at our new home in the Kinning Park Complex, Glasgow.
The CommonSpace Forum on 28 March saw Patrick Harvie, Dr Mary Ann Macleod and Abi Mordin discuss 'food, poverty and Brexit: should we demand the right to food?'. Here's the video of that discussion.
CommonSpace Forum’s are on the last Thursday of every month at the Kinning Park Complex, 43 Cornwall Street. The next one will be on Thursday 25 April (details TBC).
THE deadline for submissions to the Scottish Government’s consultation on how Scotland can become a Good Food Nation has been pushed back a few weeks, from 29 March to 18 April.
This gives an extra bit of time to generate discussion and ideas on how Scotland’s food system should be changed, and what government can do to make that change happen.
