    A quick look at the cabinet reshuffle, recorded before Tiernan went on holiday for a week so there's every chance it'll all have changed by the time you hear this because UK politics is so stupid stupid.

    The Pandemic Is Over Apart From The Pandemic

    The Pandemic Is Over Apart From The Pandemic

    The pandemic is over, well apart from the pandemic. But if you ignore the pandemic, which the government are, then its definitely finished. Which it isn't. Now time for repairing things which of course you have to do and pay for because it's all your fault. This week is on Coronavirus Act repealings, National Insurance risings, Priti Patel standards breachings and a chat with Arthur Webber (@BernieTranders) about just why Transgender rights is such an inflammatory issue.

    Back To How It Was Before

    Back To How It Was Before

    The podcast returns from its summer break in slightly truncated form. This week's subjects all rhyme if you pronounce them incorrectly: Afghanistan, the social care plan, Ian Botham. So you know, do that.

    Political Own Goals - Keeping Football Out Of Politics, Responsible Irresponsibility, Bills Bills Bills and Joe Glenton on his new book Veteranhood

    Football sadly isn't coming home or trying to settle in England for three years despite being a European citizen which the Home Office wouldn't allow. But its ok because we still have racism and Covid which refuse to leave home and move on with their lives so we still feel like we have a busy house. More on restrictions lifting as things get worse, the Policing Bill, Elections Bills and Borders Bill. Plus defence writer Joe Glenton (@joejglenton) on his upcoming new book 'Veteranhood'.

    Doing PR For Covid - Restriction Lifting, Giant Flagging, Gesture Making and Stephanie Wong at Act Build Change

    Doing PR For Covid - Restriction Lifting, Giant Flagging, Gesture Making and Stephanie Wong at Act Build Change

    If not now, then when? Asks the Prime Minister as though if we waited any longer to open up the country we might actually deal with Covid properly and then he'll have to actually do some work. Infection rates are high but it's ok as we'll learn to live with the virus, you know, by letting people die. Token gestures by the PM that doesn't do gestures, Batley and Spen by-election and why now isn't great for everything trying to return to normal. Plus a chat with Stephanie Wong (@StephWong__) at Act Build Change (@actbuildchange) on community organising.

Subscribe Now.... Brilliantly Funny & Informative.

When listening to the news gets just too depressing, check out #ParPolBro instead. It’ll make you laugh, keep you informed and the interviews are great. Tiernan gives it 100% every week and is funny with a big heart!

One of the best political podcasts out there

Consistently brilliant

A latecomer in the last 18 months to this brilliant podcast.

It is consistently brilliant. Tiernan manages to draw good information from his guests when sometimes just their presence or story to tell is enough of a pull.

Always funny, always to the point about the injustices of a Tory government and an incredibly bland opposition too, PPB is a must listen for anyone who wants their daily dose of news washed down with proper satire.

It’s long enough to settle into and you feel like an adult when you finish. Couldn’t recommend enough.
