In this New Statesman podcast special we expand on our New Times issue which identifies the political, economic and philosophical shifts shaping our society. The series will run across two episodes with special guests giving their view on what lies ahead for the crisis in Labour, the future of the left, Brexit and globalisation. On the first episode the New Statesman’s editor Jason Cowley and digital editor, Serena Kutchinsky, are joined by the Times columnist Philip Collins, Ros Wynne-Jones who writes for the Daily Mirror and the writer and publisher Colin Robinson. Plus, the New Statesman’s political editor George Eaton gives the view from Westminster.
