    By-election analysis: What just happened?

    By-election analysis: What just happened?

    Boris Johnson’s reputation as an election winner has come to an end with a double by-election loss and the resignation of Oliver Dowden as party chairman. In Tiverton and Honiton, the Conservatives saw a majority of 24,000 evaporate as the Liberal Democrats triumphed. In Wakefield, the “red wall” constituency won by the Conservatives in 2019 was taken back by Labour.

    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson is joined by deputy political editor Sam Coates in Tiverton, chief political correspondent Jon Craig in Wakefield and political correspondent Tamara Cohen in Westminster.

    Ukraine war: Why the crisis is causing starvation in the Horn of Africa

    Four years of failed rains in the Horn of Africa have led to the worst drought in four decades. Coupled with Russia's war in Ukraine which is pushing up the prices of grain and fuel to unprecedented levels, we’re exploring if a humanitarian disaster is on the horizon.

    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson speaks to our international affairs editor Dominic Waghorn, who’s been in Somaliland, and Sir Mark Lowcock, former UN under-secretary general for Humanitarian Affairs, about the crisis and what can be done to help.

    Ukraine War Diaries: WK13 - War waiters, fresh starts & a memory sent from Poland (June 13-17)

    Against the backdrop of fierce fighting in the east and a growing feeling that international interest in Ukraine's plight is now waning, Seva experiences a surreal dining experience in a Kyiv now flip-flopping between conflict and a strange kind of normal.
    Meanwhile, Oksana hears from two friends who fled to Canada and Belgium respectively, about the challenges of starting again in a new country.
    And an unexpected parcel from Poland stirs up old feelings for Ilyas.

    BACKGROUND-
    Oksana, 34, works in overseas education. She lives with her husband, Seva, in an apartment complex in central Kyiv and has remained in the Ukrainian capital since the war started.
    Many of Oksana’s closest friends have left the country to begin new lives in Europe. Some may never return. She’s determined to stay.

    Ilyas is an IT specialist and married father who fled from Kyiv to Lviv shortly after the war started. Right now his wife Natalia, and two young sons are taking refuge in Poland.
    As of June 2022, Ilyas is back living in the family apartment in Kyiv and working, in part, for the Ukrainian government on various projects.

    Seva, 40, is a company CEO and husband to Oksana. Before the war, he travelled across Europe for business. Now, he makes regular supply drops of medical aid and rations to Ukrainian troops on the front line in Eastern Ukraine. He’s originally from a small village near Dnipro.

    Ukraine War Diaries uses first-person audio, recorded on the ground in Ukraine, to give an intimate day-to-day perspective of life in a war zone.

    Week 13 diary entries were recorded using WhatsApp voice note.

    From the producers of Sky News’ multi-award winning series – StoryCast.

Thought Provoking Analysis and Experiences

As the war in Ukraine evolves, this podcast gives a thought provoking analysis and shares real life experiences of what’s going on right there on the ground. Presented in a very ethical and fair way. Thankyou.

An informative listen every day

I started listening to the Sky News Daily wanting to branch out from my usual roster of news podcasts. It’s a great listen; always informative and intriguing. Not too long, although I notice just long enough when the topic warrants it. I enjoy that each day focuses on one topic, explaining the context and exploring the significance of it. I much prefer it to other daily podcasts (sorry BBC Newscast) where it feels like at Sky, the team presents the news seriously. I can go ahead with my day informed about *the* story of the day. A recommended source for your daily news.
