A weekly politics podcast presented by Adam Boulton. The Sky News political team provides in-depth context and analysis around the big issues in politics in the UK and beyond.
Brexit and Northern Ireland: Deal or no deal?
Brexit is back on the agenda this week as Adam Boulton and guests discuss the thorny issue of Northern Ireland protocol.
Negotiations have resumed between the UK and the European Union over the implementation of the protocol with the EU offering concessions on checks.
But the role of the European Court of Justice appears the major sticking point so what next?
Joining Adam this week are the former Permanent Secretary at the Department for Exiting the EU, Philip Rycroft; Die Welt’s correspondent in London, Stefanie Bolzen and Sky's chief political correspondent Jon Craig.
Tory Conference: Crisis, what crisis?
Adam Boulton and guests reflect on the Conservative Party conference in Manchester where Boris Johnson outlined an optimistic vision for the country against a backdrop of rising prices and the removal of the Universal Credit uplift.
Plenty of focus on the 'levelling up' agenda and a high wage, high skill, high productivity economy - but very little in terms of hard policies.
Joining Adam are the chief political correspondent of the Daily Telegraph Christopher Hope, former government minister Anna Soubry and Sky's chief political correspondent Jon Craig.
Starmer speech and Tory challenges
Adam Boulton and guests reflect on Labour's conference in Brighton where Sir Keir Starmer had to overcome internal rows and a resignation before making his pitch to the party and the country in his first 'in person' speech as leader.
And with the perfect storm of a supply chain problem, the end of the furlough scheme, the universal credit cut, and a cost of living crisis we'll look ahead to the Conservative gathering in Manchester and how the governing party plans to respond.
Joining Adam this week, the Assistant Editor at The Spectator Isabel Hardman, former government minister and Conservative MP Alistair Burt and Sky's chief political correspondent Jon Craig.
Labour conference: Make or break for Starmer?
Adam Boulton and guests look ahead to the Labour Party conference in Brighton as Keir Starmer finally gets his wish to address the party faithful in person.
The leader has already outlined his vision in a 14 thousand word essay on 'The Road Ahead' but it could be a bumpy one as he grapples with the issue of changing the one-member-one vote approach to leadership elections.
Joining Adam to preview the conference are the former Labour MP Caroline Flint, author and journalist Rachel Shabi and Sky's chief political correspondent Jon Craig.
Cabinet Reshuffle: Removal and renewal
Adam Boulton and guests discuss the ins and outs of the Prime Minister's reshuffle and asses what they mean for Boris Johnson's government as he looks to grip both the domestic and international agendas for the months ahead.
They also analyse the UK, US Australia security pact designed to help equip Australia with a fleet of nuclear-powered submarines - in what's seen as the latest effort to counter China.
Joining Adam this week are Columnist at The i newspaper Ian Dunt, the Deputy Political Editor at the Telegraph Lucy Fisher and Sky's chief political correspondent Jon Craig.
Boris Johnson: What next?
Adam Boulton and guests deliver an end of term report as Boris Johnson marks two years as Prime Minister.
The pledges made on the steps of Number Ten Downing Street in 2019 have been overshadowed somewhat by the coronavirus pandemic.
But what about the future? How can he reset the agenda to achieve the goals he set out on that sunny day in Westminster two years ago.
Joining Adam this week are the former Conservative Cabinet Minister David Gauke, the writer and journalist - and Boris Johnson biographer - Sonia Purnell and Sky's chief political correspondent Jon Craig.

Anna Whobry… bitter much ?
This podcast continues to prove the MSM are as out of touch as ever. The best thing about this bitter offering is Soubry chipping in with her “yes, yes” and “no, no” and “exactly”. Unfortunately I’ve met Soubry many times. The fact this woman pretends to be a supporter of the every man & woman is hilarious! A thoroughly unpleasant person who is incapable to reflect upon her own failings, listen and attempt to improve herself. Apart from that the John & Adam show continues to annoy. A couple of public school boys salivating over the best curry they had at the expense of tax payers is tiresome.
Always frank and interesting.All political developments are well analysed without fear or favour as it should be. Adam B and Jon C with some great guests keep me listening to every episode.
