123: RISE OF THE TROLLITICIANS plus comedian Kieran Hodgson on the lessons of 1975
As the Brexit Party Ltd’s antics in Strasbourg grow more obnoxious, does the future belong to “trolliticians” who don’t really want to achieve anything – they just want to ruin everything around them? Should Vladimir Putin’s pronouncement that “liberalism is dead” worry us? And character comedian KIERAN HODGSON joins us to explain how his show ‘75’ – about the first EU referendum, and returning to London and Edinburgh soon – tells us much about the 2016 one. And the next one too…?
PLUS: Another exciting creative writing challenge! Live impersonations of Roy Jenkins, Enoch Powell and Young Tony Benn. Ros has the ‘Boring But Important Thing Of The Week’. Alex demolishes the “they need us more than we need them” argument in less than 60 seconds. And much much more.
“You’ve monetised our misery, haven’t you?”
Presented by Dorian Lynskey with Ros Taylor and Alex Andreou. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Audio production by Sophie Black at Soho Radio, London. Remainiacs is a Podmasters production.
