  • 547 - Harriet Harman on misogyny, trans rights and whether Tony Blair was a feminist

    Lewis is joined in the studio by one of the most senior women in British political history, former Labour Deputy Prime Minister, Harriet Harman.

    Two weeks into a new Labour government, she joins us for an extended conversation about her political life and journey, her memories of working alongside Gordon Brown and Tony Blair, and her advice to her successors in the party.

  • 546 - What is Clacton MP Nigel Farage doing in Milwaukee?

    It feels like the walls are finally closing in on President Biden. His closest political allies, the leaders of the Democratic Party in Congress, are abandoning him.

    Every interview he does poses more questions than it answers. How long can he fight on? Jon, Lewis and Emily discuss.

    Talking of Emily - have you ever thought she might need to get her head examined? Kari Lake, the Republican candidate for Senate in Arizona, thinks so. Meanwhile, Nigel Farage thinks she has no friends.

    Listen to both interviews to reveal all.

  • 545 - 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.

  • 544 - “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.

  • 543 - 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.
