Any Stupid Questions about... The 2019 General Election Coverage?
Ever feel like you missed something important when it comes to the news? A fact, a detail, or an event that it feels like everyone else knows about, and now you'd look like a moron if you asked someone to explain? Well, here's a podcast that will ask those questions so you don't have to.
We've decided to do two 2019 UK General Election specials. In this one, Danielle Ward is joined comedians Sooz Kempner (Mystery On The Rox podcast) and Nat Tapley (Date Fight podcast), to ask questions about the coverage of the campaign to the political editor of The New Statesman, Stephen Bush.
Questions asked and answered include:
- Why is everyone just allowed to lie these days?
- Do the Greens look better than they deserve to because they've only got one MP so can't split?
- Does anything you print about any candidate make any difference at all?
- Is this the dirtiest campaign ever?
- Which of Boris Johnson's children is the best one?
....so if you've sort of been guessing the answers based on a gut feeling, why not listen and find out for sure? And then subscribe to stay equally informed about other issues, as we get around to them.
All our guests are on Twitter, so go and say hello - @SoozUK, @Natt and @thhamilton, and Danielle is @captainward. The show itself now has a Twitter account: @AnyStupidQs. Follow it for information about upcoming episodes, recordings, and extra bits of the show that had to be cut for any reason, and to shout at us for any bits in this week's show that we got wrong.
