Might be my new favourite podcast

I recently went to see a live recording of Pod Save America (also a really great podcast) at the LA Times Book Festival and then realised Nish and Coco do the same for the UK. I am from the UK, live in the US - but am LOVING the witty, clever and probing view of what is going on at home. I can’t wait to attend a live recording of this - when Nish & Coco come to visit the US
