Great podcast

It’s a million times better now that horrible posh TERF Helen Lewis is gone.

Look to the East!

This is to politics what the Mayo and Kermode podcast is to film: a human and witty exposition of political goings-on, by Stephen Bush and A.N.Other. It’s enjoyable enough to make your agreement with the views expressed entirely optional.

So far, so lovely. Then why the need to take heart from Gandalf’s imploring to look to the east?

Well there is a swirling suggestion that the fab backing music to the podcast should be changed! [dun dun duuuuh]. In this reviewer’s opinion, this would be sacrilege and substantial circumstantial evidence of the existence of the Devil himself. Resist! Resist!
