The legendary writer, satirist and broadcaster Armando Iannucci joins the New Statesman Podcast to co-host four special episodes. In these shows, Iannucci explores areas of British politics that he believes are broken, and is joined by guests from inside and outside the Westminster machine to discuss how politics could be better.
In episode two, Iannucci and Stephen Bush examine activism and whether it’s better to be inside or outside the Westminster bubble to make change happen.
Iannucci and Bush are joined by special guests Dame Louise Casey, the former government tsar on homelessness, and who is now a life peer, and Paul Stephens, the Metropolitan Police officer turned Extinction Rebellion activist. They discuss how you make change happen, whether there’s room for compromise and what would drive Casey to march on the streets.
