The podcast speaks to various young people across the country, offering their opinions on a wide range of political topics including tuition fees, mental health, racial tension, LGBTQ, living standards and the cost of housing.

In 2017, the DJ and producer drew attention to US politics by sharing a selection of songs by artists prevented from entering the United States under President Donald Trump’s travel ban.

Hebden’s playlist – including roughly 300 songs – showcased the best music from Syria, Somalia, Libya, Iraq, Sudan, Yemen and Iran, picking out artists including Kourosh Yaghmaei and celebrated Syrian singer Omar Souleyman, who worked with the producer on 2013 album ‘Wenu Wenu’.

Hebden said the playlist additions came when he was thinking about recording in Brooklyn with Souleyman, “and it not being allowed anymore.” You can still listen to that playlist here.
