Customer Reviews

Engaging - great journalism. As easy listen.

After two and a half years of it ... who would want to listen to a podcast about Brexit ?*

(*the UK’s attempt to leave Europe)

And who would be able to make such a podcast interesting ???

The answer is here - a first rate journalist’s task is to take a complicated and frankly dull subject that spans 40+ years of UK history and tell it in a way that makes you want to hear more.

The background, the key players, the newspaper headlines ... the music Ted Heath played, the straight cucumbers, hand bagging ... it’s all here.

Bravo Mark Mardell!


A fantastic, thoroughly informative podcast series covering our relationship with the EU to date.

What happened and how we got here

A truly excellent review of the political shenanigans regarding our membership or otherwise of the European project over the last 40 years or so . There’s so much information included in this series that I was not aware of , despite having lived through it and voting a couple of times on it. Our relationship with Europe was just something that went on, in the background to my affairs. Evidently the Tory party and certain newspaper editors continued to be obsessed with it ..even though to the general public this was something established and forgotten about. This podcast shows up both those groups of powerful people as having only their personal interests in mind . It seems we are not in a Representational Democracy at all, just one swayed by charismatic men and the occasional woman with single minded views possibly it doesn’t matter what the outcome of Brexit is this’ll all be changed later anyway!
