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 116 – A slightly shorter episode than usual because Tiernan (@tiernandouieb) has a cold and let’s face it, nothing remotely interesting has happened with Brexit negotiations since last week so no need for Brexit Fallout. Instead there is an interview with Owen Espley (@owenespley) from War On Want (@waronwant) about McStrike (@fastfoodrights) and the gig economy. Plus another look at the absolute sh*tshow that is Universal Credit.
