Season 02, Ep 05: In conversation with Dr Ayesha Khan

Are identity politics and diversity really going to solve the world's problems? Can we talk about police brutality without talking about punishment in our personal relationships? Is it possible to understand oppression without understanding capitalism?

In our fifth podcast episode of Roots, we speak with Dr Ayesha Khan, aka @wokescientist, about abolition, neoliberalism, justice and accountability in a world where disposing of people is an everyday reality.
