Most underrated politics podcast on iTunes

.

European abroad ,

Less UK obsession

This is a solid podcast with great interviews, however Britain has left the EU so please stop giving the UK Government (and it’s propaganda) top billing, particularly on COVID-19. I dropped a star off the rating for that reason. The older format was more focused on goings on in the actual EU.
