THE BUNKER is fearless, free-range political talk from the team behind REMAINIACS, the hit independent Brexit podcast.
 
Every week we examine the big issues with expertise, humour and fierce independence. We cut through the claptrap, help you make sense of what’s really going on – and give you the fighting spirit to keep on keeping on. Think of it as Remainiacs, just without quite so much Brexit. And now there’s a BUNKER DAILY every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday where we talk one-to-one with experts, authors, troublemakers and interesting people from across the spectrum.

    Daily: TRUMP-BIDEN debate – Crazy Uncle’s Last Stand?

    Daily: TRUMP-BIDEN debate – Crazy Uncle’s Last Stand?

    The last confrontation between Donald Trump and Joe Biden avoided the shame of the first debate, but did it change the dynamic of the race? And how come we didn’t discover a mute button back in 2016? Thomas Gift, Associate Professor of Political Science at UCL, gives Dorian Lynskey the verdict on the election’s final stand-off.
    - “This was Trump’s last chance to speak to America… and he needed to flip the script.”
    - “For Trump, some days Biden is a secret agent of the Far Left and on others, he’s Washington Establishment.”
    - “Campaigns are poetry, but politics is prose.”
    - “In the first debate, Donald Trump set a bar so low it’s not surprising Joe Biden cleared it.”
    Presented by Dorian Lynskey. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Assistant producers: Jelena Sofronijevic and Jacob Archbold. Music by Kenny Dickinson. Audio production by Alex Rees. THE BUNKER is a Podmasters Production

    Daily: WALES vs. COVID – How clean are my valleys?

    Daily: WALES vs. COVID – How clean are my valleys?

    Is Wales really setting the COVID agenda for the rest of the UK? As the “firebreak” comes down, former special advisor to First Minister Mark Drakeford turned political consultant Cathy Owens talks to Jude Rogers. Is Wales responding better to lockdowns than England? What is the pandemic doing to support for Welsh nationalism? And why it’s not all about trying to keep English tourists out.
    Audio note: Includes sound effects live from Cardiff!
    - “This is a time for boring competent leadership, not Churchillian speeches and promising the moon.”
    - “We don’t want Boris and his chums to be in charge of Wales.”
    - “Wales leading Westminster? That’s the opposite of what we see happening here.”
    - “People in Wales voted for Ukip just like the English. We do get the Daily Mail here…”

    Will the King In The North bend the knee?

    Will the King In The North bend the knee?

    Recorded before No.10 imposed a solution on Manchester. With Manchester refusing to accept Government terms to enter Tier 3, and Wales heading for a ‘circuit-breaker’, what does rebellion in the regions mean for the Government’s lockdown strategy? Have Senate Republicans left it too late to stop themselves going down with the Donald? And our panelists travel back in time to discuss their formative political experiences.
    - “The Government doesn’t understand the needs of these communities and the people there” - Minnie Rahman
    - “Westminster is an old boys club, and even a pandemic doesn’t seem to have changed that” - Minnie Rahman
    - “People don’t trust Westminster to get COVID right” - Arthur Snell
    - “Ever since Brexit, London has been out-of-kilter with the people in power” - Arthur Snell
    - “Trump has destroyed the traditional Republican Party” - Arthur Snell
    Produced and presented by Andrew Harrison with Nina Schick, Arthur Snell and Minnie Rahman. Assistant producers are Jacob Archbold and Jelena Sofronijevic. Theme tune by Kenny Dickinson. Audio production by Alex Rees. THE BUNKER is a Podmasters Production.

    Daily: Inside New Zealand’s Ardern of Eden

    Daily: Inside New Zealand’s Ardern of Eden

    Are progressives right to get so excited about Jacinda Ardern? She’s won admiration for her handling of the COVID crisis and the massacre in a Christchurch mosque – and for crushing New Zealand’s equivalent of Ukip. Toby Manhire, editor of The Spin-Off in NZ and former Guardian comment editor, joins us from Auckland to explain what New Zealand has got right and wrong – and what Britain can learn from Ardern’s “relentlessly positive” Kiwi revolution.

    Start Your Week: The North hits back with ALEX ANDREOU

    Start Your Week: The North hits back with ALEX ANDREOU

    As Boris Johnson falls out with everyone – Manchester, Brussels, scientists, his own Northern MPs – what can we expect for the biggest crisis week since last week. Alex Andreou tells us what to expect from the EU talks-that-aren’t talks, Westminster’s stand-off with the North, and Donald Trump’s last stand.

    Daily: Turning misogyny into terror

    Daily: Turning misogyny into terror

    A poisonous online culture of misogyny is radicalising young men to hate women – producing terrifying consequences from routine rape and death threats against female politicians to actual violence and murder. Author of Men Who Hate Women and founder of the Everyday Sexism project Laura Bates posed as a young boy to infiltrate these online worlds and discover how they groom kids as young as 11 into misogyny. She tells Naomi Smith how the paranoid worlds of Men’s Rights Activists, Incels and “MGTOW”s create a conveyor belt to the extreme right – and what we have to do about this growing threat.
    - “This is terrorism. We just don’t call it that because the victims are women”
    - “You can trace the paths of men who made their name through GamerGate to the extreme right.”
    - “We need to give young men a sense of purpose and value in the real world so they don’t get it from these extremist digital communities.”
    Presented by Naomi Smith. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Logo and branding by Mark Taylor. Music is "Systematic" by Lee Rosevere. Audio production by Alex Rees. THE BUNKER is a Podmasters production
