What's On The (Ballot) Box?

Normally, political figures and popular culture should not meet. They'll only just start claiming 27-7 Feat. Captain Hollywood were Britpop or write a column trying to make a conspiracy out of the number of times that Comrade Dad has been repeated. Emma and Steve don't just know their stuff, though - they *like* their stuff, or at least like enough of it to know what they *don't* like. Wherever politics has been portrayed by popular culture, they'll talk about how far it succeeded as either, and with some surprising choices for subjects too. Will they get around to DC Comic's 'Prez', though??

Where politics & pop culture collide

I love a bit of political geekery and I love TV or film based on politics, so this has been great. Revisiting some of the best, like A Very British Coup and The Thick of It, through a contemporary political lens has been revealing. Given the background of the two presenters, we also get some nice insights from people who have been in the thick of it themselves.
