Never Mind the Monarchs
It’s Coronation weekend and Charles “invites” you to pledge your allegiance to the crown. A wholesome tradition? Or just a bit much? And should we actually read much into the local elections? We ask special guest Ben Walker, senior data journalist at New Statesman and a Labour council candidate. Then in the extra bit – for subscribers only – with rock legends Aerosmith retiring, the panel discusses people they’d like to see pack it in.
• “I won’t be saying it and I imagine very very few people will be standing on their sofas shouting the words out either.” – Ian Dunt
• “You’ve got a fundamental problem and that is that councils have been almost completely neutralised.” – Ian Dunt
• “Levelling up is just a load of words, it doesn't really mean anything.” – Hannah Fearn
Presented by Ros Taylor with Ian Dunt, Hannah Fearn and guest Ben Walker. Managing Editor: Jacob Jarvis. Group Editor: Andrew Harrison Producer: Chris Jones. Audio production by Simon Williams. OH GOD, WHAT NOW? is a Podmasters production.
