Stephen is away this week, so Anoosh is at the helm. First, she is joined by Citymetric editor and known Brexit loather Jonn Elledge to discuss the transition deal and why fish were thrown into the Thames at Westminster. Then, she interviews Francisco Cantú, a former border guard on the US-Mexico border and the author of The Line Becomes a River. Finally, George Eaton answers one of your questions: why is it the convention not to name politicians' spokespeople?

Send us your questions for future episodes via Twitter @ns_podcasts@anoosh_c, @jonnelledge or @georgeeaton, or join us on Facebook for a live Q&A.
