Pod Save the UK

12:34 PM GMT+1 on May 7, 2023

    Pod Save The UK – The hugely popular political discussion show Pod Save America has launched their own British version this week, hosted by former Mash Report host Nish Kumar and Guardian journalist Coco Khan. 

    The US version, presented by a team of ex-Obama staff, has received acclaim for the breezy yet geeky way it covers the latest coming out of Washington. The UK one promises to capture that same essence, with Kumar saying: “If there’s one thing British people like to do, it is go abroad and steal ideas and resources.” 

    There are two episodes out so far. One is where Pod Save America’s Jon Favreau, Tommy Vietor and Jon Lovett join to talk about the origins of the US version. The second is a deep dive into attitudes towards monarchy and the Royal Family.
