#14 Cough Cough

10/6/2017
More
Join the British Dream to round off conference season with the podcast that the Prime Minister named her vision for the country after. We dive into the content of Theresa May's ill fated conference speech and find out that even if she delivered it properly, it would have sucked anyway. And a conversation with Solomon Hughes, journalist for VICE and Private Eye, who has spent years sniffing around political party get-togethers on the look out for corporate lobbyists and dodgy influence.

#12 What Do the Tories Do Now?

8/14/2017
More
As the summer recess sits uneasily with the potential of nuclear winter, Tories are writing confused think-pieces, while Corbyn is sticking to what he knows, heading off on another campaign tour. We ask what the Conservatives should do next, whether Moggmentum will give the Tories any impetus, and discus nuclear war – Good or Bad? We also head to the Manchester International Festival to hear about whether the youth vote rocked the election.

#11 Who Is Actually In Charge?

7/8/2017
More
Welcome back to the British Dream. A lot has changed since the election. Jeremy Corbyn is the Prime Minster, except he's not. Theresa May can't be leader, but somehow, technically, she is. Tory austerity is coming to an end, in the form of a £1 billion sop to Northern Ireland to keep the Tories in power. So who's really in charge here? Join us outside the VICE office for a big bag of cans as we try and sort through the mess, and talk to Simon Elmer from Architects for Social Housing about...

#9 Very Accurate Election Predictions (Bonus Episode)

6/5/2017
More
Could anyone really win at this election? While the election seems less of a foregone conclusion than it was, somehow it still feels like ultimately, we all lose. In the week of the election, the British Dream sets itself up as a hostage to fortune, and predicts who'll be in the least worst position on polling day. We promise eat shards of broken glass outside Parliament if we're wrong.

#8 How the Election Stopped Being a Foregone Conclusion

6/2/2017
More
As the big day gets closer, it feels like a very different election to the one we started talking about a few weeks ago. Theresa May, sweating like she’s taken a bad pill, Jeremy Corbyn looking like he’s mainlining Xanax – what’s changed? We try and suss it out, and interview Caroline Lucas, leader of the Green Party and consider why the biggest existential threat facing humanity isn’t a blip ojn the electoral map.

#7 Voices Of Manchester

5/26/2017
More
After the atrocity at the Manchester Arena, we headed to the city to hear how people are coping and how people are banding together in grief. We spoke to people in shock, communities refusing to be cowed, and young Muslims determined to show that the atrocity doesn’t represent them.

#6 Why Do Politicians Never Answer the Question?

5/19/2017
More
With rigorous academic analysis showing Theresa May giving a straight answer just nine percent of the time, how can we expect to hold anything to account, ever? Maybe all we can do is click the “angry” button on Facebook live. Certainly, it’s difficult to know what to make of the Conservative manifesto, launched this week resembling the order of service at a posh funeral. Conversely, the Lib Dems headed to a nightclub to talk about drugs. Have a listen to the latest edition of the British...

#4 Mayday Mayday

5/5/2017
More
So far this bizarro election campaign has seen Theresa May embarrassing herself, and Jeremy Corbyn surprisingly looking vaguely like he actually wants to be there. Not that anybody seems to care. With the public having the opposite perception, does any of this even matter? Meanwhile in Brighton, angry workers were taking to the streets to make their voices heard about crappy wages and unstable jobs. Theresa May made a scary speech about the EU, and UKIP have taken a shellacking at the...

Strong and stable Strong and stable Strong and stable Strong and stable Strong and stable Strong and stable Strong and stable Strong and stable Strong and stable Strong and stable We discuss the first week or so of the election campaign: Jolyons, bank holiday banter, strong and stable government.

#2 Oh, Snap

4/20/2017
More
After saying she wouldn't seven times, Theresa May has called a snap election. She's decided that yes, actually, she would like a mandate - so if the people would kindly give it to her she can get on with Brexit and you can't grumble. It's nice of her to ask. Fortunately The British Dream Podcast is here to articulate your hysterical delight, soothe your concerns and pretend to understand what's going on. Recorded on Wednesday 19th April 2017.

#1 Casual Labour

3/3/2017
More
Following Labour’s less than great byelection results last Thursday, this week kicked off with Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell writing that a “soft coup” against Corbyn was happening, and UKIP was having an existential crisis all of its own. Meanwhile, a video emerged of Uber's CEO arguing with the driver of one of his own taxis, and some Deliveroo riders in Leeds were feeling aggrieved because they weren't getting enough hours to pay the bills.
