Podcast: A Weevil in the Shadow Cabinet

The New Statesman podcast with Helen Lewis and Stephen Bush.

By NS Podcasts

Helen and Stephen have been on a podcast school trip to David Hare’s new play I’m Not Running, and they have some thoughts about how accurately it portrays contemporary Labour politics. Then Emily Sargent from the Wellcome Collection joins to discuss buildings, council estates and housing design.
