Play • 1 hr 8 min

In this episode of MSG10, we are joined by musician, radio presenter, and activist Chris Thorpe-Tracey for a freewheeling look at Protest songs through the early 20th Century. And if you go to our website at, or our Mixcloud at you also get to hear the tracks by Paul Robeson, Bob Dylan, Roberta Flack , and many more.

We cover issues including unions, the Vietnam War, Jim Crowe era racism, and The Catholic Church. We also ramble a little bit, get distracted but it was a fascinating and fun chat.

Chris has a substack which you should subscribe to at

Our theme music comes from the always excellent Jonathan Fisher
