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.
The podcast returns for the new year/decade/yet more time we have to endure. What does this new year bring? War, fire, Brexit and of course the worrying issue of some rich people wanting to do other things. Stressful times. Northern Ireland, Iran, Brexit, some things you may have missed and Tiernan (@TiernanDouieb) talks to comedian Jenan Younis (@Jenan_Younis) about why the situation in Iran is actually more about Iraq, and what the West and in particular the left, keep getting wrong about the Middle East.
