87. In For A Penny?

Listen on

Episode notes

Harriet and Producer Martin speak to Penny Mordaunt to settle those leadership rumours once and for all, and also to find out how important being able to hold a sword up is in modern politics. They also speak to outgoing Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford about everything he's done in the last five years, from the 20mph speed limit to the 20mph speed limit. And in a week when the Scottish police seemed to want to target comedians for their speech, Eshaan Akbar gives a preview of the offensive things he'll be saying on tour, in case the boys in blue fancy a night out.
