25 episodes

Join the team behind the @SimplePolitics Instagram account, Tatton, and Diane, together with host Kobi (@kobestarr) as they reflect on the last week's political landscape in the simplest way possible.

Who we are
Simple Politics does things differently. We exist to help you have better conversations about the issues and the changes that matter. We do so by being clear, accurate and impartial. Also, light-hearted, engaging and occasionally (but not as often as we think) amusing.

It’s not just about understanding the facts and the topics themselves but also looking at why different people hold the opinions they do. Those with whom you disagree aren’t monsters. Understanding and respect are at the core of everything we do.

Our core offering will always be free.
Unfortunately, giving things away for free isn’t a great business model. We’ve never been business people. But. We do need to make this work.
We do so through our amazing supporters, who keep us going by buying stuff in our shop and making monthly donations.

Simply the best...

...politics podcast. Easy to listen to and digest, always a new perspective or something to consider that you might not have done. It’s great to have a guide that’s helping you to think not telling you what you should think.

Loumcw ,

Tatton’s bias is very obvious.

I appreciated the SP posts on FB during Covid that broke down changes and news. Since the move back to normal politics it is nowhere near as impartial. Tatton makes it very obvious that he is a Tory.

Came here from Instagram

Love the page on Instagram. Love podcasts. Should be win win. Overall the podcast is ok. I listen to it. However hearing covid pronounced ‘cov vid’ really makes my skin itch. We’ve all heard the word said out loud way too many times over the past 2 years to know how it’s pronounced!!
