The Pod Delusion

Why did Britain end up a democracy? And could it all fall apart? Plus: Branches of Currys that still use the old logo.

September 26, 2019

This week we do some hardcore political science, but don't be scared - it explains whether Britain can survive the current shitshow or not. Also! Whether a four day week could actually work, why normal people think about politics way differently to us nerds, and all about what will become your new obsession: Spotting shops with out of date signage.
