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 ONLY ANOTHER EPISODE ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS. A sentence that will be this podcast blurb for the next 3-6…years. Its ok though because despite us all being locked down and isolation nation, there is still politics happening. Even though most of it is just which MP has coronavirus today. So this week’s show is all about our positive PM, self employed non-help, some actually cheery news, sort of, and a traditional ParPolBro tribute to Jeremy Corbyn of every description of him ever used on the show. Plus a chat with the brilliant neuroscientist and comedian Dean Burnett (@garwboy) all about how our brains are handling these strange, strange times.
