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 160 – The Queen done a speech and it was full of things that may not be relevant in 6 days time, but hey, why not talk about hem anyway as everything in life is ultimately finite. We’re back to a proper length pod, Brexit Fallout returns and Tiernan (@tiernandouieb) speaks to Helen Barnard (@helen_barnard) from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (@jrf_uk) about UK poverty.
