Recent episode: #MeToo: from Hollywood to HR
Have a listen to Charlie and Georgia discuss the #MeToo movement and how it has progressed from a hashtag used by Hollywood actors to something affecting the lives of everyone in the workplace, within families and online.

Polarisation and Populism
Charlie talks about political polarisation and populism, and argues that the only way to stop having people like Trump emerge is to tackle the environment that created him in the first place, by accepting that our politics are divided and adopting radical policies that would actually address the discontent and poverty that fuel populism.
  • Spotify
Battle of the Geriatrics
Charlie discusses the upcoming Democratic Primaries and argues why his favourite old guy running is better than the other ones.
  • Spotify
For our debut episode, our hosts (Charlie Buckley and Sam Rigby) discuss the upcoming general election and pray it means we won't have to talk about Brexit anymore. Apologies for our umm-ing and ahh-ing, we're new to podcasting and hopefully soon enough we'll sound more like professional broadcasters than year 4's doing a show-and-tell presentation
