How to listen to the New Statesman podcast

The New Statesman publishes three podcast episodes every week. On Mondays we interview leading thinkers on politics, economics and the forces shaping the world, and share exclusive reporting on how political decisions are affecting life in Britain. On Thursdays, Anoosh Chakelian is joined by our politics writers including Andrew Marr, Rachel Cunliffe and Freddie Hayward to analyse the stories shaping politics. On Saturdays our team answer listener questions about British politics.
