76: “People’s Vote? I’m in!” DEBORAH MEADEN of Dragon’s Den is our special guest

We’re thrilled to welcome the legend that is DEBORAH MEADEN – star of Dragon’s Den, business colossus and indefatigable Remainer – into the Remainiacs bunker. Why is she refusing to be bullied into silence over Brexit? What does it mean when the Party of Business refuses to listen to business? How does Deborah score Theresa May on leadership? What’s it going to say on her banner at the People’s Vote March on Oct 20th? And will Deborah accept our surprise offer of a 49% stake in a thriving young podcast company? (Spoiler: no).

Plus – why won’t pop music engage with our society’s biggest upheaval in half a century? We meet Dutch musician AMBER ARCADES aka Annelotte de Graaf, whose new album ‘European Heartbreak’ turns the European crisis and Brexit itself into a lush album of poignant and thought-provoking pop.

“I don’t want to live in a broken society. And I think I’m well placed to point out what Brexit means for people who can’t weather the storm as well as me” – Deborah Meaden
