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 144 – Milkshake is the new weapon of progress, Theresa May still has no new ideas, and apparently there is politics happening in other places in the world too, calling for an overdue Partly Global Broadcast. Plus Tiernan (@tiernandouieb) speaks to friend of the pod Tatton Spiller from Simple Politics (@easypoliticsuk) about his new book The Breakdown.
