Love Politics

My girlfriend was watching love island and I just had to listen to something very different ! Ok so listening to Remainiacs brought me to listening to The politics.co.uk which is just as enjoyable to listen. This is an insightful fun & intellectually stimulating show with political observer heavy weights such as Ian Dunt ( Lord protector of politics) that will put any other political podcast to shame!

Interesting Politics Podcast

I've enjoyed this podcast so far, it's nice to see a more detailed discussion of political stories that often only get a few minutes on the news. Good range of topics covered too.
