The Pod Delusion

Roll Up, Roll Up, Please Bring Some Insulin, It’s The Festival Of Brexit!

November 7, 2019

This week we explore the government's plan to host a big "Festival of Brexit", to celebrate the biggest foreign policy disaster since World War 2, and figure out how the terror threat level is actually calculated. Plus! We speak to cartoonist Darryl Cunningham about his new book that takes aim at billionaires - and kick off a horrifying election season experiment.

Prof Richard Aldrich was our terror expert. Here's his book on GCHQ, and his book on the relationship between the spooks and Number 10.

Dr Harriet Akinson has written a whole book about the Festival of Britain and how it was used for post-war propaganda.
