Podcast: America’s Blue Wave

The New Statesman podcast with Helen Lewis and Nicky Woolf.

By New Statesman

Helen is joined by the New Statesman’s US editor Nicky Woolf to discuss the child detention scandal on America’s borders and the “blue wave” of left wing candidates winning primaries. Then, they answer a provocative listener question: what’s annoying you most at the moment? (Spoiler, it’s a lot of things, and some of them are Brexit-related.)
