We're delighted to announce that More Than a Shop, a podcast series developed in collaboration with Co-operatives UK, Co-op News, The Co-operative Heritage Trust and The Co-op has now passed over 1,500 steams since its release earlier this year.

About the series

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.

Each episode covers a big topic, from climate change and food to mental health and education.

The chat is lively, energetic – sometimes controversial and always entertaining – completely 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!
