Fraser Mycroft: Chai and Chat with Jo Fletcher-Saxon for the Working Class Academics Conference
This podcast has been recorded and released for the Working Class Academics Conference 2021. Jo asks Fray to share his experiences of presenting at last year's conference and what to expect from his contribution at this year's conference (see Solidarity Spaces). They explore the term working class and class identity in childhood and adulthood. Jo asks Fray about his year living in Copenhagen and reflections on class from that experience. They talk avocados and consider what Fray would do with notions of cultural and social capital if he was education minister. See you at this year's conference!

Kelvyn Quagraine: Chai and Chat with Jo Fletcher-Saxon for the Working Class Academics Conference
This mini podcast is one in a short series being recorded in the run up to the 2021 Working Class Academics Conference.  Kelvyn talks about his work with Football Beyond Borders (FBB), working with young people under the threat of school exclusion. His social justice values shine through as does the huge impact of FBB's work with young people. We talk about the term working class and what it means to Kelvyn and the young people he works with. We then find out about The Black Beat, an Instagram account that Kelvyn set up with the aim of celebrating black British culture - to empower, educate and elevate.
