Welcome to our Radical Solutions podcast, where we interview people with big ideas to create a discussion about the UK’s future.

In this first episode we speak to Lisa Nandy, MP for Wigan and founder of the Centre for Towns. She discusses the future of our towns, and why our idea of progress is all wrong. What do you think? Comment, share, like, tweet your reactions or tell us your #radicalsolutions!

This podcast was produced and hosted by Bridey Addison-Child and Tessa van Rens.

This series will see many people interviewed with different opinions. Unlock Democracy is creating a discussion about big ideas, but the views expressed by the guests are not the views of the organisation.
