Jam Tomorrow – April 30th 2010

Jam Tomorrow looks at Politics: The Next Generation.

K.Biswas and Rys Farthing are joined by the leading experts from the current generation of young politicos, including feminist blogger Laurie Penny; founder of Liberal Conspiracy and Pickled Politics Sunny Hundal; Editor of Left Foot Forward Will Straw; environmental campaigner Joss Garman; and Chair of Young Labour and Hope not Hate activist Sam Tarry.
