Podcast (Ep.9): #GOPdebate, Kids Company and Nagasaki Anniversary

Donald Trump Sr. at Citizens United Freedom Summit in Greenville South Carolina May 2015 by Michael Vadon

Another week, another Right Dishonourable podcast, in which Jimmy and Jazza scrub up on the week’s news and attempt to embarrass themselves as little as possible over the course of an hour.

This time round we have the return of our favourite American politician, outlandish and questionably-coiffed reality TV star and occasional businessman Donald Trump, as he attempted to derail the Republican Party debates on Fox News. Did he succeed? Will his antics ensure Hillary Clinton makes it to the White House? And just what is his attitude to women?

Next up we cover the collapse of Kids Company, a charity dedicated towards vulnerable children that closed its doors last week after running out of money. We discuss the role of chief executive Camila Batmanghelidjh, allegations of mismanagement and what it means for prime minister David Cameron’s “Big Society” vision.

Lastly, on the 70th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki we discuss the role of nuclear weapons in modern geopolitics. Along the way we cover Japan’s seeming departure from post-World War Two pacifism, as well as tensions in the South and East China Seas.
