Episode notes

On today's episode of the New Statesman Podcast, Stephen Bush, Anoosh Chakelian and Ailbhe Rea are joined by the NS's Special Correspondent, Harry Lambert, to discuss his cover feature on the future of the BBC. Then, in You Ask Us, they take your question about whether Keir Starmer's big speech had real policy substance or was just a sop to the commentariat.
