    Owing It To The Kids - Schools, Brexit and a chat with Dr Tony O'Sullivan at Keep Our NHS Public

    Owing It To The Kids - Schools, Brexit and a chat with Dr Tony O'Sullivan at Keep Our NHS Public

    The Conservatives say they owe it to the children to get them back in schools during the pandemic, which makes you wonder just what it is kids did to them to now deserve this sort of repayment. Plus immigration bill, all the rest of the week's nonsense and awfulness, Brexit Fallout returns and you know you missed it and there's a chat with Dr Tony O'Sullivan (@drtonyosullivan) from Keep Our NHS Public (@keepnhspublic) on how privatisation of the healthcare service has made the now time even worse.

    STAY ALERT! NEVER SLEEP! STAY ALERT! FILL YOUR EYES WITH COFFEE! What does the government's new slogan mean? Why isn't Wales, Scotland or NI doing it? Why does the rest of the world think we're idiots? So many questions and little to no answers.

    Getting The R Down - Tests that aren't tests, Baby Wilfred, and a chat with a former COVID19 111 call centre worker and APT Gemma Norburn

    Thanks to new government methods of numbers not meaning anything, this podcast now has 100,000 listeners a week! You know, if you include all the people who don't listen to it. This week Tiernan (Laddish - The Guardian) looks at tests that aren't, Baby Wilfred BoJo, and the Hancock track app. Plus a chat with a former COVID19 111 call centre worker and another chat (I spoil you I do) with the so very cheery APT Gemma Norburn who talks about being an NHS mortuary worker and cake.

    Invisible Muggery - Boris Returns, Deloitte testing, SAGE and Pope Lonergan on issues within the care home system

    Invisible Muggery - Boris Returns, Deloitte testing, SAGE and Pope Lonergan on issues within the care home system

    Don't worry everyone the Prime Minister is back! Oh wait, no, he was here this morning spouting something about a mugger, but where's he gone now? Anyway it doesn't matter because even though everything is terrible it could have been worse if the government hadn't done the absolute bare minimum required to stop it being the absolute worst. Phew! We should all be so grateful. More chat like this on this week's show, plus some COVODDS and COVSODDS and a chat with brilliant comedian and former care worker Pope Lonergan (@thedailybumbler) about the issues in the care home system that have led to pandemic horrors.

    HEALTH AND THAT - Continued lockdown, PPE supplies, COVID-19 Myths and Pauline Eyre on new parents during pandemic times

    HEALTH AND THAT - Continued lockdown, PPE supplies, COVID-19 Myths and Pauline Eyre on new parents during pandemic times

    We are at the peak. Not of coronavirus cases, but of collective stupidity. Badges for NHS staff instead of PPE, a Prime Minister that can't even be bothered to attend meetings and everyone happy that the health service has to now be funding by elderly people doing exercise. A normal podcast episode again, if such a thing is possible anymore, with some COVID-19 myth dispelling and a chat with antenatal teacher and comedian Pauline Eyre (@yespaulineeyre).

Daryl Urq ,

Makes dull parts interesting!

This is coming from somebody not heavily into politics for a start! This show makes what is quite a heavy subject, if you don’t keep up with it outside the headlines, very palatable and easily understandable. In turns hilarious, informative and thought provoking, Tiernan always manages to find the perfect guest for the situation and marries it beautifully to his comedic yet insightful intros. Outstanding work!

Will_A ,

Agent’s message response

Oi oi Tiernan. Felt forced to write a review following your agent’s request on the pod! Love your show and the absolute first rate quality of guests. Keep it up and the side stories about family life in London, the absolute state of housing and protecting plug sockets from fingers.

louisestrange ,

Hugely underrated podcast.

This is a consistently great podcast which balances comedy, weekly political news & serious issues really well. And Tiernan’s similes are second to none *chef’s kiss*
Highly recommend-I look forward to it every week!
