Radio Reversal is a show that subjects aspects of everyday life to historico-political, theoretical, cheeky, irreverent, high brow, low brow, eye brow, warm-hearted analysis. Our aim is to see the world more clearly, think about what we'd like it to become, and how we can make that happen.  We think that discussing these sorts of ideas is one way to lessen the alienation that affects many of us trying to make sense of a world that so often makes no sense of us.  We also play loads of awesome music (sometimes thematic!) with great enthusiasm for requests and an emphasis on supporting local artists. It's fun!

Colonial-settler media complicity w Dr Randa Abdel-Fattah

Hi Zed-delights! This morning of Radio Reversal, we are extremely excited to bring you an interview with the extraordinary Dr Randa Abdel-Fattah about colonial-settler media complicity with the genocide of Palestinians in Gaza (and, increasingly, throughout occupied Palestine). Dr Abdel-Fattah is a prominent Palestinian Egyptian Muslim author, academic, human rights advocate, former lawyer and mother of four children. She is currently a Future Fellow in the School of Social Sciences at Macquarie University. Randa is the award-winning author of eleven novels, published and translated in over 20 countries, has written across a wide range of genres and actively seeks to translate her academic work into creative interventions which reshape dominant narratives around race, human rights, multiculturalism and identity in popular culture.

Randa is well known for her commentary as a public intellectual, her media appearances and her essay and op-ed writing across a wide range of genres. This kind of media presence comes with a heavy price, and she has also been subjected to vicious and targeted attacks from Zionists and the Murdoch Press. Her strength in the face of these racist attacks has been truly admirable and we stand in solidarity with Randa in all of her work, across the realms of academia, media, and the arts.

This interview will also feature in an upcoming episode of our Radio Reversal x Justice for Palestine Magan-djin podcast, available via our substack and on all the usual streaming platforms.
