Best podcast in politics
By a distance the best political podcast available. Neutral and unbiased but informative and challenging of everyone. Why can’t other journalists interrogate impartially without betraying their own bias as Nick Robinson manages to do?
Love this podcast but would like to know what’s the pattern or frequency as sometimes it’s weekly and then nothing fir a while...could you at least give a date so can pop in diary.
Kemi is brilliant
Thank god for some common sense.
