    What is Starmerism? Labour's first King's Speech

    What is Starmerism? Labour's first King's Speech

    Keir Starmer promised "national renewal" in today's King's Speech, where he outlined his policy plans for the next parliament.
    So did we get our first glimpse of what Starmerism might look like? Is the state back? And do we now have the most interventionist government for decades?
    Later in the show we return to Milwaukee and the Republican Party National convention. Emily is there speaking to senior party figures and asking where all the traditional Republicans have gone, as Trump and his acolytes take over the GOP.

    “Full of cranks and weirdos” - inside the Republican National Convention

    “Full of cranks and weirdos” - inside the Republican National Convention

    Emily is live from the Republican Party National Convention in Milwaukee, a room full of "cranks and weirdos", as we react to the news that Ohio Senator J.D Vance will be Trump's running mate in the 2024 Presidential election.
    What does Vance stand for? Will he change the trajectory of the campaign? And is he even more Trump than Trump himself?
    Later in the show we discuss two men who have resigned from their jobs today. Welsh First Minister Vaughan Gething, and England manager Gareth Southgate.

    Has the assassination attempt helped both Trump and Biden?

    Has the assassination attempt helped both Trump and Biden?

    Emily is in Milwaukee for the Republican Party National Convention, just 36 hours after an assassination attempt on their Presidential candidate Donald Trump.
    As both he and President Biden call for unity, we ask whether the shooting on Saturday will help both candidates. Is it an easier race now for Trump? Has it ensured a stay of execution for Joe Biden? And how long will this new-found unity last?
    Later in the show, historian and journalist Nick Bryant joins the show to talk about American's violent and constant battle with itself.

    Trump shot: What does it mean for the election?

    Trump shot: What does it mean for the election?

    Hours after Presidential candidate Donald Trump was shot at a rally in Pennsylvania, Jon and Lewis take a look at how the assassination attempt will impact the election in November.
    Will it strengthen Trump's campaign? And does it mean Joe Biden will now definitely stand against him?

    Weekend Edition - The Sports Agents

    Weekend Edition - The Sports Agents

    This week on The Sports Agents,
    We reflected on England's run to today's Euro 2024 final, Lewis Hamilton's record 9th British GP win and Novak Djokovic turning on the centre court crowd at Wimbledon.
    But you asked us to find out what's going on at Manchester United, after it emerged that the Women's side would be moved to 'portacabins' in order to accommodate the men - so we were joined by a host of guests including the former Head of Women's football at United, Polly Bancroft, to investigate a growing sense that the club's new owners simply don't care about the Women's game.
    With England v Spain on the brain and to mark two weeks until the start of the Olympics in Paris - a couple of TeamGB icons, Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill and Iwan Thomas, joined us to talk about how to 'peak' at just the right time for a moment that may only come around once in an athlete's career.

Please stop talking over one another

Podcasting isn’t a race for words. It should be about having a good time while talking amongst friends.

Love these three

A good cynical look at the current state of affairs outside of the 30 second, 5 word sound bites we so often get spoon fed. I would wonder if we could get Lewis a lapel mic for his little asides we so often loose in the final mix.

Pontificating Elite Media Snobs

It's painful to listen to you three pontificating snobs you are so transparent!
