JoJo & Turkeynecks

Iain and Jacqui look at the potential consequences of Jo Johnson’s resignation. They debate what would happen in the event of no deal on Brexit, as well as what happened in the US midterm elections. They ask why the commemorations to mark the centenary of the end of World War One haven’t been more extensive, and they answer a lot of your questions. Some of which provoke smut-tastic answers.


Griefcast Lite

Iain & Jacqui mark the first anniversary of the For the Many podcast, but the celebrations are tinged with sadness. They analyse Tracey Crouch’s resignation, look back on the budget, wonder if David Cameron really wants to return to front line politics, as well as look at the latest Brexit developments, the US midterms and question if Andrew Marr was right to invite Arron Banks onto his programme. Lots of excellent listener questions too. Smut quota: Almost non existent.

In association with the Progressive Britain Podcast, this is a recording of an event organised by Progress. It features an ‘In Conversation’ with Jacqui Smith and Margaret Beckett. The chair is Progress Deputy Director Stephanie Lloyd.


Budget Sex Toys

Iain and Jacqui preview the budget but get rather side-tracked by the decision of Sainsbury’s to sell sex toys. Iain’s friend Dan makes a guest appearance with hilarious consequences. Iain and Jacqui eventually recover their equilibrium to talk about the US pipe bomb attacks, Theresa May, Jamal Khashoggi, the British high street, and they reveal… cue drumroll… what they eat for breakfast. Smut Quota: Astronomical.



Iain amd Jacqui review the week’s Brexit developments and Iain wonders why Jacqui wasn’t on the People’s Vote march. Jacqui predicts that Jeremy Corbyn will stand down as Labour leader before the next election and will be replaced by Angela Rayner. They discuss the release of Anjem Choudary, the Huddersfield grooming gang sentences, Nick Clegg joining Facebook and John Bercow’s position. And they answer more questions from listeners than ever before. It’s the longest podcast so far, but...


Murder In Istanbul

The Lonely Goatherd

Iain and Jacqui indulge in a bit of singing and ponder the consequences of the disastrous EU summit in Salzburg. They look ahead to the Labour Party conference and wonder what lies ahead for The Bodyguard. And they answer a shed load of your questions including which politician has the weakest handshake (you might be shocked by both their answers) and which is Iain’s favourite Abba track. Do podcasts get better than this? Smut Quota: Lowish.


The Arch Bishop…

And Iain tries to persuade you to subscribe to his new ‘Cross Question’ and ‘Iain Dale Book Club’ podcasts. Iain and Liam would like to apologise for the pure filth in this episode. Normal...


Iain Reveals All

Iain reveals all the details of his change of show on LBC. He teases Jacqui about how many times she had it away with her bodyguard as Home Secretary – apparently the answer is a disappointing zero. They also discuss the latest woes for Jeremy Corbyn and whether other Labour MPs might follow Frank Field’s lead.


Jacqui’s Revelations

Iain and Jacqui discuss Jeremy Corbyn’s plans for the media and his latest descent into anti-semitic controversy, Jacqui reveals she nearly stood down from Parliament and her memory of Alex Salmond after the Glasgow terror attack, and Iain says that Emmanuel Macron has something of the ‘Tommy two ways’ about him.

Terror, or was it?

Iain and Jacqui discuss the fallout from the alleged terror attack outside Parliament, they pull apart Iain’s week in Spain and answer some pretty direct questions, including will Iain still have a radio show when he returns from his week in Norfolk. A nation’s breath is baited.


Oh Boris…

Jacqui and Iain tear into Boris in the way only they can, Jacqui reveals her maternal inadequacies, they discuss what to do if you discover your child’s a racist, and LBC’s political editor Theo Usherwood puts in a surprise guest appearance.

Brexity Trumpery

Iain and Jacqui look at the pros and cons (only cons in Iain’s case) of the agreement Theresa May struck with her Cabinet at Chequers. Things don’t get much better when they move on to preview Donald Trump’s visit to the UK this week. Jacqui has a particularly bad case of the potty mouths this week do the Smut Quota is disgustingly high. At various points you might want to avert your ears. Meanwhile Iain goes all Eurovisiony and the two of them enjoy some football banter.
