In this week's podcast, former West Durham MP Laura Pidcock joins The Northern Agenda's Dan O'Donohue to discuss why she has quit Labour's governing body, the National Executive Committee.
The ex-Labour MP also gives her thoughts on Keir Starmer's leadership, and why she is still fighting to get the Tories out of government.
And Northern Agenda editor Rob Parsons also speaks to Richard Jeffery, a senior business figure in Greater Manchester, about how firms in the North are coping with the challenges and opportunities of the pandemic, net zero, and the digital transformation.
The Northern Agenda is a Laudable production for Reach. It is presented by Rob Parsons and Daniel O'Donoghue, and it is produced by Daniel J. McLaughlin.
