Partly Political Broadcast is a mostly weekly podcast that combines politics and comedy in a way that might seem pointless in today’s farcical day and age but the difference is on this podcast the humour is intentional. Written and hosted by comedian Tiernan Douieb, every episode has a joke filled look at the previous week’s political news alongside in-depth interviews with political guests who fully explain and discuss current issues. Oh and occasionally there are really awful jingles.
There aren’t many rules to the ParPolBro podcast but the handful there are include:
Host Tiernan Douieb is a mostly political comedian who has supported Frankie Boyle several times, just released his third filmed stand-up special online, occasionally writes for things and spends far too much time on Twitter. He also makes a very good cup of tea.
One of the Observer’s Top Ten Political Podcasts.
Episode 121 – It’s been another one of those week’s in British politics when the best way to sum things up is by loudly screaming while smacking your head into a large wooden pillar. Yes there’s a Brexit Agreement, no, no one likes it, not even one person and if they say they do they’re lying. This week Tiernan (@tiernandouieb) delves into why everyone be hatin’ on May, plus a look at the UN rapporteur’s report into poverty in the UK and a chat with Jen Persson (@TheABB) at Defend Digital Me (@defenddigitalme) about the Children’s Commissioner’s report into children’s digital rights.
