Episode notes

Trump’s in town

Donald Trump arrived in the UK on Monday night. He’s here for a NATO summit and will enjoy a reception at Buckingham Palace – but will not meet Boris Johnson. Our editorial today says Mr. Johnson is right to tread carefully this close to a general election, and Deputy Political Editor Nic Cecil joins The Leader podcast to explain why.

Hope for brain cancer

Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) is the most common and deadly adult brain tumour with 2,200 cases a year diagnosed in England. Former BBC executive Jana Bennett has spoken out to say that she is being treated for the disease and is working alongside the UK launch of the OurBrainBank app. The Evening Standard’s Health Editor Ross Lydall tells The Leader podcast how vital this initiative will be for patients and with researchers across the world – could it lead to a cure?
