    Richard Porritt, Matt Withers and Cash Boyle return to shine a light on another week in politics.

    They are joined by The New European columnist Ian Dunt to examine the abject failure of the government to deal with the coronavirus crisis.

    Plus in Cash And Burn they try to get to the bottom of what Nigel Farage's new Reform UK party is all about.

    They are joined by film critic Jason Solomons to talk about a new documentary about Shane MacGowan.

Episode 18th September

This was a shambles of an episode. I’m a fan of this podcast and the paper, but it’s so frustrating when the interesting insights that Richard and Steve genuinely have are drowned in pointless waffle. Maybe they were just pleased to be back in the studio and see each other face to face that they were carried away. Hopefully they can rein it in a bit next week!

hello snowflakes. i can't listen to this whilst shopping anymore because it makes me laugh so much.

Middling, but lovely background noise.

I can’t say I enjoy the rambling nature of this podcast, with its cultural recommendations and really insightful points that get pulled into conversational cul-de-sacs of old man chat and unfunny, overplayed jokes that have flogged their dead horse to Iceland lasagne.

All of that said, when Anglesey and Porrit get split up and are forced to act as host to other guests (usually because Steve is on holiday) its electric. Honestly, I’ve been listening for about 18 months now (I think?) and this week’s episode (28 Aug - One of our prime ministers is missing) is the best I’ve ever heard. Genuinely a five star episode.

Unfortunately I know it’ll be back to usual two star fare shortly enough so 3* it is.
