New Discovery: Electoral Dysfunction

An antidote to the traditional political pod?

3:00 PM GMT on March 7, 2024

    What happens when three political powerhouses start a podcast? Well, you listen to it – duh! But in all seriousness, Electoral Dysfunction is a must for your feed. With thanks to support from Sky News, here is why.

    This year is looking like it will be one of the biggest when it comes to political shifts in the world, with almost half of the world’s population heading to the polls. There isn’t an easy way to talk about the slew of information that we are all surrounded by when it comes to different ways democracy works (and doesn’t), and Electoral Dysfunction is your answer to all this confusion.

    Sky’s political editor Beth Rigby, Labour MP Jess Phillips and former leader of the Scottish Conservatives Ruth Davidson make for a perfect blend of charisma and expertise as they unpack UK’s political events and how they are being discussed in the media. The trio don’t approach politics with a complex agenda – they simply make it interesting to discuss and easy to digest. The episodes will be out weekly, and the first one was released on Friday, March 1st following the Rochdale by-election as it looked at what George Galloway’s victory means for the country and parliament. 

    With so much to unpack this year as the country prepares for the general election, there is no better time to really get yourself immersed in the nitty gritty of political spin and the happenings of Westminster and beyond. These changes will affect all of us – so make sure you stay ahead of the elections by following the show in your favourite podcasting app.

    Oh and did I mention… this is a political show by three female hosts? So there is that, too – it’s a one-of-a-kind podcast that you simply need in your feed. Subscribe now to get episode 2 this coming Friday.
