East Marshian Chronicles Podcast: What’s Next? Lord Maurice Glasman and the Genius of Grimsby

Lord Maurice Glasman

Today’s podcast from the edge of things is a fascinating chat with Lord Maurice Glasman.

Maurice talks about his strong family background, finding himself in an unchallenging role as an academic and about breaking free of all that and discovering a joyous new skill-set as a Community Organiser – and unexpectedly finding himself in the house of lords (as you do). It’s quite the story.

Maurice then set up the Common Good Foundation – which ultimately led him to reach out to and stand with the people of Grimsby – and here we all are… also with Community Organiser Bryn making a timely intervention.

And what is the Genius of Grimsby? Listen in to find out.

This episode is dedicated to the independence and fighting spirit of Maurice’s mum.
