Welcome to the early access, ad free edition of the New Statesman podcast.

On this week's New Statesman Podcast, Anoosh Chakelian and Stephen Bush are talking about how the preposterous idea of a government of national unity became part of mainstream political discourse. Then, in You Ask Us, they consider whether we're prepared for no deal and, finally, Anoosh is joined by Emily Bootle to discuss whether comedy panel shows have run their course.
