Subscribe to new podcast More Than a Shop

We are excited to introduce new podcast More Than a Shop.

Presented by BBC broadcaster and journalist, Elizabeth Alker, More Than a Shop welcomes guests with something new and radical to say about the big issues of our day and doing business the right way.

The series is called More Than a Shop because it helps people understand that co-ops are so much more than just high street convenience stores. 

Each episode covers a big topic from climate change and food, to mental health and education. The chat is lively, energetic – sometimes controversial, always entertaining.

The chat is lively, energetic, sometimes controversial, always entertaining – in the spirit of the worldwide co-operative movement. Co-ops proudly offer radical alternatives to mainstream ways of getting things done. They are indeed so much more than a shop.

Join us as we explore how people power and co-operation can tackle some of the biggest challenges facing society.
