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.
We all have to pull together to fight the virus, said the Prime Minister. It’s just that you have to do all the pulling with no financial support or help from the government who are too busy imprisoning students, telling schools that kids can’t learn about how awful they are and making Kent independent. Another standard week in British politics, meanwhile over the pond Donald Trump hasn’t paid his taxes for years. But then whether he’s actually ever done any work is also debatable. Plus some shitty things the government have done that you may have missed and a chat with behavioural scientist Dr Andrew Marcinko (@andrew_marcinko) about just how and why we’re all behaving like we are in these exceptional times.
