Customer Reviews

Informative, innovative and diverse

A great podcast, raising the bar for political analysis in the run-up to the election. A must-listen for all those interested in not just UK, but global, politics.

Refreshingly insightful commentary in the run-up to the most remarkable election in living memory

I can’t be the only one fed up with seeing the same people wheeled out in the media to discuss politics, which is why I love this podcast – each episode shines a light on the fundamental questions this election raises with fascinating guests you won't hear elsewhere.

It’s particularly enlightening for anyone interested in the long-term state of our democracy, and not just the day-to-day twists and turns of the election (although these are covered in the podcast to). All in all, very highly recommend.

Clarity, depth, insight and impartiality

Placing the run up to the 2015 General Election into a wider political, global and historical context this is both a welcome tonic to the paucity of debate in the mainstream UK media and an enlightening refuge for anyone ambitious for progressive ideas. The tone is enquiring, the spirit is curious and the analysis is measured. I hope the series continues long after the election.
