    The climate crisis: A royal campaign

    The climate crisis: A royal campaign

    The British Royal Family has been at the forefront of the campaign to tackle climate change for over 50 years.

    Most recently, Prince Charles announced his “Terra Carta” principles, calling on businesses to act now to tackle the climate crisis.

    It follows the £50m Earthshot initiative launched by Prince William to encourage people to solve sustainability issues.

    But what impact does the Royal Family actually have on the environmental crisis?

    And do their pledges make a difference?

    On this edition of the Sky News Daily podcast Dermot Murnaghan is joined by Ed Davey, the co-director of the World Resources Institute, who worked with the Prince of Wales on a number of climate initiatives, and Sky’s royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills.

    What does impeachment mean for Trump?

    What does impeachment mean for Trump?

    We have seen one of the most dramatic sets of events in US political history, but with just days left of Trump’s presidency, how will his impeachment change how the Republican party functions and how will the president be remembered?

    In this episode of the Sky News Daily podcast, host Dermot Murnaghan is joined by Sky’s US correspondent Sally Lockwood to explain what lies ahead for Donald Trump, loyal supporter Cathi Chamberlain on what effect the impeachment has had on Trumpism and former Republican member of Congress, David Jolly on why he believes Trump will be remembered as the worst president in US history.

    COVID vaccine priority - young before old?

    COVID vaccine priority - young before old?

    The UK is immunising the elderly and most vulnerable groups first in the fight against coronavirus – with healthcare workers and carers also a priority.

    In Indonesia, they are doing things differently, with 18 to 59 year olds at the front of the queue.

    The strategy is perhaps ethically questionable, leaving those most at risk of falling seriously ill or worse vulnerable.

    But might the move actually be a smart idea?

    On this edition of the Sky News Daily podcast with Dermot Murnaghan, our South East Asia correspondent Siobhan Robbins explains more about Indonesia’s COVID vaccine rollout.

    We are also joined by Senior Research Fellow on the Oxford Martin Programme on Collective Responsibility for Infectious Disease, Alberto Giubilini and GP Ellie Cannon, who participated in the Oxford Vaccine Trial.

    COVID compliance: tough love for rule breakers?

    COVID compliance: tough love for rule breakers?

    Breaching coronavirus restrictions isn’t a new problem – but as the new variant continues to spread and NHS pressure grows, the issue has been a focal point in recent days.

    Speaking during Tuesday’s Downing Street news conference, Home Secretary Priti Patel insisted the current rules were "very simple and clear" and "tough enough".

    The chair of the National Police Chiefs' Council Martin Hewitt also said a "stubborn number" of people are still refusing to follow them.

    Are police using the right approach? Do rule breakers need some tough love? And how has human behaviour been critical in shaping the COVID pandemic response?

    On this edition of the Sky News Daily podcast with Dermot Murnaghan, we are joined by Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne and Stephen Reicher, who is professor of Social Psychology at the University of St Andrews and member of the Independent Scientific Pandemic Insights Group on Behaviours (SPI-B).

    Cancer and COVID: Surviving a pandemic

    Cancer and COVID: Surviving a pandemic

    COVID-19 has put the NHS in the most dangerous situation in living memory, piling unprecedented amounts of pressure on an already strained health service.

    In some instances, life-saving cancer treatment may be postponed, a move that will undoubtedly cost lives.

    In the first lockdown, cancer referrals were down by 75% which has created a backlog of undiagnosed cancer patients.

    Have lessons been learnt and can we save the lives of more cancer patients during the second wave of coronavirus?

    On this episode, Sky News sports presenter Jacquie Beltrao is joined by columnist and cancer podcaster Deborah James, also known as Bowel Babe, to discuss their experiences of living with cancer in the middle of a pandemic.

    They're also joined by oncologist and president of the Royal College of Radiologists, Dr Jeanette Dickson, to ask what impact the second wave will have on cancer treatment.

    Trump and the death penalty: The story of Lisa Montgomery

    Trump and the death penalty: The story of Lisa Montgomery

    Just a warning, this podcast contains graphic details of violence and sexual abuse that some listeners may find distressing.

    The Trump administration has carried out the most federal executions for 130 years. After a 17-year hiatus, the president had them resumed in July 2020. Since then, the US government has applied the death penalty to 10 people.

    On Tuesday 12 January, the only woman on federal death row, Lisa Montgomery, is scheduled to be killed by lethal injection. If this goes ahead, she will be the first woman to be put to death by the federal government in 70 years.

    In this episode of the Sky News Daily podcast, host Noel Phillips is joined by members of Lisa Montgomery's legal campaign.

    To explain why the president is pursuing these federal executions, he talks to Sandra Babcock, who is clinical professor at Cornell Law School and the faculty director of the Cornell Center on the Death Penalty Worldwide, along with Leigh Goodmark, professor of law and director of the Gender Violence Clinic at the University of Maryland, and J.D. Gordon, a former senior policy adviser to Donald Trump.

Missing negative feedback

Twice I have left slightly critical reviews of this show and both seem to have been removed or hidden.

Hardly surprising, really.
