Ancilla van de Leest - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #137
5 days ago
Welcome, welcome, welcome (or indeed, goedemorgen, goedemiddag, goedenavond) to Pip's second half of the Dutch mini-podcast tour! It may have been a mini round-the-houses whirlwind but he fit in a lot, and in episode 137 he is joined by none other than Ancilla van de Leest of the Pirate Party!
Now Pip may be bending one of the self imposed rules he set a while ago by having a politician on the show, but there is a fascinating scene to be set and tale to be told in Ancilla's journey to where she currently finds herself. It's been a while in the works but they finally got to sit and talk, and here's your chance to sit in on an educational and hopefully inspiring discussion regarding the Pirate Party itself (in he Netherlands and worldwide), how it works, started, and functions (Pirate Bay is heavy in there), her own history and all that entails, how she got into politics (Pip is involved!!), net privacy and the huge problems which arise from that, digital rights, and all manner of deep political goodness including The Notorious Brexit, Trump-a-looza and so on... Oh and Pip lets us in on his voting system which sounds very promising indeed. A glorious and full on interesting one right here - make it a part of your listening post-haste. Get to know Ancilla!
