Publisher's Summary

Progress is a constant state of learning and unlearning.

Writer, curator and producer Liv Little questions our modern understanding of big subjects – consent, race, transness, disability and body image – by learning more about their past.

Unlearn addresses a series of uniquely modern dilemmas: how did we get to the point where couples verify consent to have sex with each other via an app? How has our language about trans issues become so problematic and challenging? Is it possible for us to unpick the toxic understanding we have of our own body image?

Liv talks to contributors from across generational lines about what they’ve learnt and unlearnt during their lifetime in relation to these subjects. Has the progress that was made by each generation been positive? Or has it set us up for a more complicated present and future? And if progress is a constant state of unlearning the knowledge that’s passed on from generation to generation, what comes next?

at first i liked the series but it slowly started turning into an opinion piece rather than facts.

Not as enlightening as I’d thought

Thought I’d hear some deeper incite from this but it seemed more run of the mill accounts from people of their personal experience from their view point.

Thought-provoking & interesting

I've loved every episode of this series. I felt like I dipped into many personal areas that invited me again to widen my perspective in a healthy way. Loved it and would love to hear more from Liv Little. Thank you.

Great concept - want to hear more

The inter-generational debate table is usually kept sacred for Christmas dinner, but this podcast cracks open the format, covering a topic from the lived experiences of people throughout time, unapologetically and head on. My only critique is that I want more! Liv handles conversation like a pro, particularly when it takes a wayward turn in the body image episode. But these are important conversations to have, and they are illuminating rather than infuriating. People of all ages could do with listening, taking note, and then engaging in the conversation with their community. There is a lot to unlearn.

Make yourself a favour and skip it.

I was hoping to find a fresh perspective on certain topics, but instead I was served a bunch of biased, unscientific opinions.
Too bad.

Disappointingly dull

I tried the first 3 episodes but couldn’t get more than 10 minutes into any of them without my attention wandering. I think the same content could have been presented in a more engaging way. Such as shame as the topics covered are important ones.

Could have been much better

For an edited series, this is very poor. It sounds like it was completed without any contemplation, as if the narrator was reacting to interviews in real time, with no consideration for a cohesive argument, logical train of thought, or proper choice of vocabulary. It could have been a meaningful, eloquent discussion of really important issues, but it turned out to be a mish-mash of interesting first-hand accounts, unstructured responses to unscripted interviews, and a generally unsatisfactory scraping of the surface.

Lacked structure and conclusions

Disappointing, this was patchy . Some insightful contributions from guests and some enlightening statistics but not life-changing. Shame because I was interested in the topics and wanted something more concrete.

Fresh, just would have loved a little more depth

These topics are important to me, I follow them all; and I heard a few lesser heard outlooks. But they are hugely important and they were so well handled here that it would have been good to have less of a skimmed over view and more of a real examination with action points and advice. Something to build on?
