Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! Our special guest on the show this week is Pauline Black of the legendary UK 2-tone ska band The Selecter. The Selecter have been playing music for over 35 years, and have always brought an incredibly poignant anti-racist and anti-sexist element to ska music. They just released their new album ‘Subculture’, and Pauline tells us all about it.

Plus, we also had a surprise guest drop by the studio, Paola Quiros, from one of our favourite podcasts, Suena a Revolucion! Suena a Revolucion is based out of Vancouver, and features mostly feminist music from across Latin America and the Caribbean. Make sure you check them out!
