This week, George Eaton, Rafael Behr and Helen Lewis discuss the week in politics - including the political ramifications of the latest GDP figures, the questions Ed Miliband needs to find answers to over the summer, and the new mood of conservative triumphalism that is so at odds with reality.

On top of that, our newly-arived Arts Editor Kate Mossman (also our pop critic) discusses Spotify with Philip Maughan. What does it mean for artists, and is it going to make music worse?

Finally, Alex Hern and Helen Lewis talk about the latest changes at Amazon. The company finally seems to have decided to make money. . . So watch out for the new delivery charges!

Happy listening.
