It features a conversation between Kevin Maguire from The Daily Mirror and HNH’s Head of Intelligence, Matthew Collins, about the true story behind the dramatic new ITV series The Walk-In starring Stephen Graham as Matthew Collins.

The Walk-In tells the incredible true story about how Matthew worked ...

Whilst flash storms hitting the UK and British politics still in a state of tumult, Nick and Joe get together to discuss some twists on familiar topics: low turnout at a far-right demo, fascists staring down the barrel of some tricky legal problems and the mainstream media failing to grasp the severity of platforming far right figures.

Stephen Yaxley-Lennon ("Tommy Robinson") held another demo in Telford last weekend in c...

It has been a decade since HOPE not hate released its first groundbreaking Fear & HOPE report, the biggest investigation into identity undertaken in Britain.

This year, following ten years of political upheaval, HNH has released a new Fear & HOPE report to better understand how social attitudes have changed during that time. In the recovery from a global pandemic but heading into economic recession, amidst a political conte...

It’s been a hectic time at HOPE not hate as we’ve just successfully netted one of our biggest fish in recent years; a right whopper by the name of Andrew Tate.

Tate is a violent misogynist who shot to fame on social media, especially TikTok, projecting a supposedly glamorous lifestyle of fast cars and wealth whilst simultaneously using his platform to share his disgusting views towards women, as well as his homophobia, ableism and I...

Nick and Joe come back after a short hiatus in order to discuss the far-right and conspiracy groups’ targeting of Drag Queen Story Hour events, a series of storytelling events at public libraries during the summer holidays. The campaign has been spearheaded by Patriotic Alternative (PA) and has seen buy-in from groups across the far-right, but in recent days some have stepped away citing Patriotic Alternative’s extremism as somethi...

So Boris Johnson’s era as Prime Minister is reaching its conclusion, as on Thursday 7th July he took to the podium outside Number 10 to announce his resignation. But what will the legacy of the Johnson era be when it comes to anti-racism and racial equality in Britain? Have things improved or has his government been a disaster for cohesion in Britain? Nick and Joe take a broad view at the last 2 and a half years.

Such a vast amount ...

On this episode of the podcast, the creator of the BBC One drama, Ridley Road, speaks with HOPE not hate's Nick Ryan.

A four-part show which premiered last October, Ridley Road is set in London's East End and tells the story of a young Jewish woman's involvement in the 62 Group; an organised antifascist contingent taking the fight to Colin Jordan's National Socialist Movement in the early 1960s London.

It’s been a minute, but after a short hiatus Radio 43 is back on the airwaves. Thank you for your patience and apologies for the period of silence from Radio 43!

Sadly, personnel changes at HNH mean that in the intervening period we have waved a fond farewell to both Roxy and Jake. We wanted to get them on the show before they left, but for various reasons we couldn’t make it work. We hope that you’ll join us in sending them love an...

The who, where and wtf?! of all the far-right candidates running in the upcoming local elections. Essential listening for all those who want to oppose fascists from establishing local power in their constituency.

Joe and Nick giving the facts, and nothing but the facts you need to take on fascists today.

It's a bumper episode. Tommy Robinson (Stephen Lennon) got deported from Mexico, the biggest and most humorous story of the day. The irony of a racist, Trump supporter, being deported from Mexico hopefully not lost on anyone... and meanwhile more and more evidence that Lennon has been lying about his wealth piles up each day.

State of HATE 2022 – the leading annual report outlining the key trends and changes in the domestic and international far right – shows how the past year has led to an environment in which we will likely see the return of far right activists back on the streets, standing in elections and exploiting the uncertainties created by economic hardship.

Nick and Joe are reunited with Roxana for an overview of the wasted lives on the British Far Right.

Tommy Robinson gets involved in a very banged-up, clown car of a political party, it is unclear why he has, and its likely to all fall apart.
PA did a conference, typically they were inept on security allowing info gathering all round.

Nick and Joe are joined this week by Safya, a researcher at HOPE not hate.

The war on Ukraine by Russia has summoned all kinds of ghosts of historical fascism, and while this podcast normally focuses on the UK  far right, we decided that the war was of high enough global importance to anti-fascists that we gave the issue precedent.

The subjects under discussion are:

  • The various responses to the war from the wide spectrum of thought in...

    Joe, Nick and Roxy have been banging out the Lemsips today in a particularly congested episode of R43.
     They discuss:
     -Neil Coyle and Sinophobia.
     -Resistance GB, Ex-tory councillors involved in Keir Starmer bothering.
     -Tommy Robinson's latest, embarrassing, and now deleted video, where he picks a bleeding spot from his forehead and brags about spending donations on booze.
     -Tommy hanging out with a man involved in a brawl death.

    Stephen Lennon's crusade in Telford continues apace. But while "Tommy Robinson" loudly protests horrific instances of grooming, he has overlooked how close to home abuse often is. 

    Elsewhere the gang discuss the pro-genocide "joke" of Jimmy Carr, as well as further convictions for nazi terrorists, who were planning novel  terror, with 3d printed guns, and bomb-making manuals disguised as Minecraft guides.

    The three come together to discuss:

  • The small showing Tommy managed in Telford.
  • The Uyghur issues around the Beijing Olympics.
  • Boris Johnson's disgraceful use of a misinformation meme the far-right prefers.
  • And the upcoming Southend Byelection.
  • Get your ears on the antifascist antidote.

    Stephen Lennon's financial gameplaying looks like it will finally catch up with him.

      Bone Valley

      Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.
