Trumps and Rumps

On this week's New Statesman Podcast, Helen Lewis and Stephen Bush are discussing Donald Trump's state visit to the UK, and whether there's any point to all the pomp and ceremony. Then, Helen talks to Ben Power, writer of The Lehman Trilogy, about how to dramatise centuries of the financial system, and, finally, in You Ask Us, we say goodbye to (most of) Change UK and answer your questions about whether the remaining MPs can make it to conference season.
