  • 552 - Has Keir Starmer overreacted to his seven rebels?

    Keir Starmer has faced down his first rebellion by removing the whip from 7 Labour rebels who voted with the SNP to end the cap on child benefits for families of more than two children.

    Did Starmer overreact? Or does it look decisive? And is this really the policy he wants to hold out on? A decade old policy of Osborne austerity.

    We speak directly to one of the rebels who lost the whip and ask what happens now.

  • 551 - Is the US presidential race about to get dirty?

    Kamala Harris raised a hundred million dollars in the day and a half since Joe Biden announced he wouldn't be standing for re-election.

    She has now passed the delegate threshold to stand as the candidate - and as we record no one else has thrown their name into the ring.

    Republicans are meanwhile having to accommodate the new reality of having the oldest candidate in the race.

    Later, we look at the UK broadcasting landscape with Ofcom regulator Melanie Dawes. Does Ofcom have teeth? And will it use them?

  • 550 - Will Kamala Harris replace President Biden?

    There is a dizziness to American politics right now - Vice President Kamal Harris raised 49 million dollars in the first twelve hours following Joe Biden's announcement that he would exit the race.

    She spent ten hours hitting the phones to garner Democratic support and is insisting she must 'earn' the votes of the delegates. But is the race already sewn up? Or might other candidates throw their names in the mix? And how well do we really know the figure who could be America's first female president?

    We talk to Ambassador Tony Gardner - a man right at the centre of the Democrats presidential campaigns, and to our leading historian Simon Schama - about the legacy Biden will leave and what this moment means for America.

  • 549 - Special Episode: President Biden quits 2024 race

    Chaos reigns in the Democratic party. In a virtually unprecedented move President Joe Biden has stepped aside from the presidential race weeks before he was due to become the Democrats’ candidate at their national convention in Chicago.

    Biden has endorsed his VP Kamala Harris. But is she assured of the crown?

    In a hastily assembled emergency podcast Jon, Emily and Lewis discuss the implications for the Dems, the election and the rest of the world.

  • 548 - Weekend Edition - The Sports Agents

    This week on The Sports Agents, Gareth Southgate resigned following England's Euro 2024 final defeat, and the world's best golfers tee'd it up for the 152nd Open Championship...

    The man who hired Gareth, former FA Managing Director Martin Glenn, joined Gabby & Mark for an insight into the process of finding his replacement and The Athletic's Jack Pitt-Brooke joined us in the studio to help assess the leading candidates.

    After Rory McIlroy defended his own caddie ahead of his first appearance at a major tournament since his US Open collapse, we were also joined by caddies Billy Foster(Matt Fitzpatrick) and Jeff Brighton(Colin Montgomerie)to find out more about the mind-blowing complexities of the role and how much difference a great one can really make.
