True Currency: About Feminist Economics is a six-part podcast hosted by artists Amy Feneck and Ruth Beale (The Alternative School of Economics), launching on 16 July, with a new episode released weekly. The outcome of an eight month residency, the podcast is produced in collaboration with Lucia Scazzocchio from Social Broadcasts, and presents detailed testimonials from academic researchers, policy experts, community leaders and activists; and explores financial inequality, feminism, intersectionality, labour exploitation, unpaid work, care, unionisation and reproductive labour. Over the six episodes Amy Feneck and Ruth Beale hear from several contributors, including the Director of UK Women’s Budget Group, Director of FLEX (Focus on Labour Exploitation), a campaigner for Sex Workers’ Union, a parent and NHS community nurse. The podcasts discuss financial inequalities and consider the issues migrant women face when campaigning for fair pay. They also look at unpaid work and care, and consider future re-imaginings for a feminist economy. The final episode focuses on how the Coronavirus pandemic has thrown light upon many of the issues discussed throughout the series. -- EPISODES Released Thursday 16 July 2020.

The podcast series was developed between September 2019 and April 2020, through conversations with experts and workshops with community groups at the Henry Fawcett Children’s Centre and IRMO (Indoamerican Refugee and Migrant Organisation). These workshops encouraged conversations between women and parents who were interested in these ideas, and are actively involved in feminist economic projects.
