What is the Labour party and how can new members get involved? This podcast is a Beginner's Guide to the Labour Party. It has been produced independently, with support from Compass. It is intended to help the hundreds of thousands of people who have joined Labour in response to the rise of Jeremy Corbyn to understand the party and engage with it. Many thanks to Holly Rigby, Jeremy Gilbert, Sue Goss, Mark Cooke, Huw Jordan, Gabriel Bristow.
