Podcast Ep. 70: Tony ‘The Bear’ Blair Launches Brexit Reunion Tour

Right Dishonourable 70 Tony Blair

With Tony Blair urging the people to “rise up” against Brexit, Labour MP Diane Abbott complaining about bigoted online abuse, and PewDiePie accused of anti-Semitism, it’s been an uproarious week in politics.

Joining us to chew this over are the ladies of DAS Podcast, Ruby Pabani and Charlie Brades-Price, whose excellent periodical podcast sees feminism take on the likes of beauty, pregnancy and the Internet.

A copper tweeting about LGBTTQQIAAP+ (and breath) language rules capped off a tricky week for the folks at Twitter, who are losing money at an impressive rate, even by Silicon Valley’s standards.

UK premier Theresa May and The Donald met to begin their courtship with some, er, hand-holding, just before the new president enacted the so-called “Muslim Ban”, prompting a slew of lawsuits showing that America will indeed be great again, if only for lawyers.

The inauguration of US president Donald Trump took an explosive turn this week as a test nuclear missile was shot in the wrong direction, albeit in an entirely unrelated event many months beforehand.

Meanwhile, some women walked around a few cities moaning about things, with one Theresa May saying she was so bored of Brussels she was going to abandon the whole thing.

Podcast Ep. 66: Corbyn, Trump Rebrands Go About As Well As Expected

RD66 Jeremy Corbyn Soviet Gag

A New Year, and a new start for both US president-elect Donald Trump and the British Labour party chief Jeremy Corbyn gets off to a successful start – until the men start talking.

With one smearing his newspaper opponents as fake news for publishing a “dossier” of unverified intelligence, while the other adopts as many positions on immigration as he can, it looks like the sequel to 2016 is going to be eventful, if not outright terminal.
