The Deindustrialization and the Politics of Our Time (DePot) Podcast will be recording a live episode, using the film "Billy Elliot" (2000) as an entry point to discuss gender in the context of deindustrialization and deindustrialized communities.

Postdoc Fred Burrill will host this discussion, joined by Amber Ward, a Depot affiliate and PhD student, along with Montreal-based students Lauren Laframboise, Liam Devitt, and Amanda Whitt.
