"We have let people who don't understand the basic concept of how humans work define one of the most complex international negotiations that has ever happened".

In this episode, Charlotte Galpin once again joins Cory and Steve in the Not Enough Champagne nuclear bunker. This time it's to talk about the German election. Nobody is talking about Brexit, but instead the main topic of conversation is how to deal with the populist threat of the AfD and how to revive the Social Democrats.

In this episode, Steve and Cory talk about how men should discuss sexual assault in the wake of the numerous accusations made against Harvey Weinstein. 

(Note: This episode was recorded on Saturday, before James Corden and Woody Allen added yet more ways in which sexual assault should not be discussed.)

We discuss exactly what *that* Theresa May speech was a metaphor were, and whether she can survive as Prime Minister. Then we discuss Labour's altogether happier affair, and was their decision not to debate Brexit at conference actually quite sensible?

We kick off a series of podcasts about education by discussing whether pupils should be taught how to code. We discuss how coding is like brewing in the fourteenth century and Steve does his centrist dad credentials no good by praising (some of) Michael Gove's work as Secretary of State for Education.

In our first bookclub episode, we discuss Chris Mullin's A Very British Coup, a fictional account of an establishment plot to bring down a left-wing Labour government? How dated is the book, and what is its relevance in the Age of Corbyn?
