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.
Its second wave time even though we all know sequels aren’t as good as the originals. What happens with Wave 2? More Wave, more lockdown? Some electric boogaloo? No, mostly it’ll probably be just more vague messaging and inaction from the government. Surprise! But actually all of it is your fault for wanting tests, for getting infected a month earlier than expected and generally demanding anything from our poor PM who’s only earning half the salary he used to when he didn’t have any responsibility. Plus this week, a chat with several time podcast Dave Powell (@powellds) on where things are with climate change and he even manages to add a bit of hope in there too.
