Campaign 2016: Conventional Commentary + Brexit Followup
As the oldest and best reality show continues its craziest season yet we take an extended look at the pressing questions of the campaign, including: why has Trump been so disturbingly successful, and what's the best way to attack him? How are the key players adjusting to this new political reality, and are they doing it well? And do the warnings about 'throwing your vote away' or enabling Trump if you don't vote for Hillary have any merit (featuring a heated 20-minute debate about Ralph Nader)?
We also follow up on the political aftermath of Brexit - the rise and fall (and rise again) of Boris Johnson, the coronation of a new Prime Minister, and Labour's last stand - as well as the difficulties in making Brexit happen now that the dust has settled.
As always you can listen below, here, or on iTunes here.
