115 | Taming Trump

We talk with Bronwen Maddox, Director of the Institute for Government and former Washington bureau chief of the Times, about the latest revelations from inside Trumpworld.  With claims that the resistance has spread to the government, we ask whether it is ethical for administration officials to resist the elected president.  Is this about Trump's personality or his policies?  What precedent might be being set?  And are Obama's interventions in the mid-term elections helping?  Recorded at the Institute for Government with Helen Thompson.

82 | Who is Jeremy Corbyn?

We talk about one of the central questions of British politics: what does Jeremy Corbyn really want? In the week he's been forced to answer questions about what he did in the Cold War, we ask where his past connects to his present and how long he can maintain his delicate balancing act on Europe. Plus we discuss his attack on the press barons who are attacking him: where does power now lie in the new media landscape? With Helen Thompson and Chris Brooke.
