    Introducing: Sweeney Talks

    Introducing: Sweeney Talks

    Hey listener, we’ve got a new LBC podcast that we think you’d like called Sweeney Talks with old-school reporter, John Sweeney.

    John is trouble. He's taken on Vladimir Putin, challenged Donald Trump, and after months of uncovering hard truths in Ukraine, he’s back. John is never silent about what he’s experienced. Sweeney talks, and in this podcast, so do his guests. John speaks to people like him, who are not prepared to be part of the silent majority. They refused to toe the line, and have found themselves in trouble. Big trouble. Activists, agitators, heroes… or villains. You decide.
    Listen and subscribe to Sweeney Talks on Global Player. https://www.globalplayer.com/podcasts/42KuWd/

    Go to Global Player for exclusive bonus episodes where John offers candid reflections on what he's discovered during each interview, what surprised him and what we can learn from it all.

Great podcast but somebody teach Dr Felzenberg how to silence notifications. Or put his phone in the other room. Almost unlistenable.

Very Interesting!!

Wonderfully interesting and highly entertaining podcasts. And educational to boot. A ‘can’t miss’ for anyone interested in British political history.

Really interesting RE Do the Walpole one

Was the guy on the Robert Walpole drunk? Please re do this one with someone better. He sounded like some drunk guy at the end of the bar…
