152: CORBYN & JOHNSON'S TRUDGE MATCH, plus polls, manifestos and ASK REMAINIACS

The first episode of Remainiacs to be verified by "Fact Check UK” as “proper good, five stars on iTunes from us…”

Who won the first debate of the campaign between Johnson, Corbyn and Corbyn’s enormous specs? 

We discuss manifestos, polls and potential landmines for the main parties, and how wave after wave of scandals like CCHQ's @factcheckUK con, dubbed Actually Orwellian by our Orwell expert Dorian Lynskey, have dulled our reaction to them. 

“If I step on a turd and walk into this studio, all of you will smell something iffy. If I step on a turd and we record a sewer, none of you would notice.”

Plus, ASK REMAINIACS returns. We’re doing another part next week, so get your questions in below or at info@remainiacs.com.

Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Ingrid Oliver, Alex Andreou and guest panelist Helen Lewis. Audio production by Sophie Black, with scripting by Alex Rees. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.
