Maff Potts on teepees, altruism and mutual aid

Maff Potts is founder of the Association of Camerados, the catalyst for a movement of people who believe the answer to our problems is each other. Camerados are constantly trying new ways to encourage connection and mutual aid. This podcast was recorded in a teepee erected in the foyer of Blackpool hospital, a magical space that enticed in 1,000 visitors each week. Those entering got a Camerados badge, and when they were contacted a week after spending time in the teepee they were found to be more altruistic and more open to mutual aid. Maff Potts talks about the successes and failures of this work, and his aspirations for the movement.
