  • Partly Political Broadcast Podcast
    Partly Political Broadcast PodcastPartly Political Broadcast is a mostly weekly podcast that combines politics and comedy in a way that might seem pointless in today’s farcical day and age but the difference is on this podcast the humour is intentional.

    How Does This Politics Thing Work Then?Politics is boring. Politics is complicated. Politics is for adults. Rubbish! Politics is actually super important and can be made really fun, if you know how. Luckily Tatton Spiller (Simple Politics) and Tiernan Douieb (Comedy Club 4 Kids, CBBC's The Slammer) know exactly how and will show you over 60 minutes just how to make sense of it all.

Programmed to believe they have to be part of this endless, pointless cycle as it wears away at them. Day in, day out. Not him though. No. He’d soon be gone and the thought of escape resonated, all-encompassing until it boomed out as thick uncontrollable belly cackles. Loud and jolting, he felt the dawn zombies shuffle with unease.
