What has been happening in the UK and beyond today? Dermot Murnaghan hosts the Sky News Daily podcast featuring news and in-depth analysis from our team of specialist reporters.

    QAnon: Why is 2020 the perfect storm for a conspiracy theory?

    QAnon: Why is 2020 the perfect storm for a conspiracy theory?

    QAnon is a conspiracy theory which alleges that top Democrats, billionaires and Hollywood celebrities are Satan-worshipping and running child sex-trafficking rings. The only person that can save America from them is Donald Trump, believers of the theory say.

    In just three years it’s gone from anonymous posts on fringe message boards to having at least 100,000 followers and being designated a potential domestic terror threat by the FBI. The president himself has refused to debunk it.

    On this episode of the Sky News Daily podcast, host Noel Phillips is joined by Professor Joseph Pierre, Health Sciences Clinical Professor at the University of California, to discuss the psychology behind QAnon and Dr Ashley Frawley, Senior Lecturer in Social Policy at Swansea University, who explains why humans are drawn to conspiracy theories.

    Plus Kate Shemirani from the UK anti-vaccination movement tells us why she thinks COVID-19 is a tool of compliance.

    Three people have died, including one who is thought to have been decapitated, in a suspected terror attack in Nice, France.

    It’s the latest in a series of terror-related incidents in the country in recent years.

    As more people are killed by extremists, what steps can French authorities take to tackle terrorism?

    And just two weeks on from the beheading of teacher Samuel Paty over a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad, is this a reaction to freedom of expression?

    On this edition of the Sky News Daily podcast, host Jayne Secker is joined by Dr Emma El-Badawy, the head of research at the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, to talk about France's cultural row and author Mick Hume discusses the impact these attacks have on free speech.

    The story of Britain’s first black policewoman | 28 October 2020

    In 1968, Sislin Fay Allen applied to join the Metropolitan Police. At the bottom of her application, she felt the need to point out that she was black.

    When she passed the interview process and was accepted into the police force, she made history.

    This Black History Month on the Sky News Daily podcast, host Noel Phillips travelled 5,000 miles to Jamaica to meet Sislin and hear her story.

    He also speaks to her daughter, Paula, about how her mother changed attitudes in the police force and what is still yet to be done.

    Plus, MP Sarah Jones describes the true extent of Sislin’s legacy in Croydon – where she was posted.

    Hundreds of cafes, restaurants and councils in England have taken it upon themselves to provide free meals for children this half-term.

    On this edition of the Sky News Daily podcast, host Noel Phillips speaks to Claire Oliver, owner of an art café in Manchester providing food for children this half-term.

    Plus we hear from Asad Rehman, who grew up on free school meals and is now the director of the anti-poverty charity War on Want.
