It’s a brutally complex political world out there – and sometimes even the most dedicated news addict feels hopelessly confused. That’s where The Bunker comes in. 

Every morning, seven days a week, The Bunker delivers in-depth analysis of domestic and international news in explainers, interviews, explorations of little-reported stories and on-the-spot updates from the world’s hotspots. Informed, witty and often very funny, The Bunker is your daily bite-sized alternative to the depressing routine of conventional Punch & Judy political broadcasting. Subscribe and feel cleverer before your morning coffee’s even gone cold.
