On this week's New Statesman Podcast, Helen Lewis and Stephen Bush are joined by Anoosh Chakelian for an episode looking at politics beyond Westminster – firstly in Wales, and then discussing local elections in Maidenhead and Hartlepool. Then, in You Ask Us, they're recommending ways to enjoy your politics-free week as Parliament heads to recess.
