Daniel Hewitt and Shehab Khan from the ITV News politics team chew through the week's big UK political stories and give Political Editor Robert Peston a call from wherever he is to get his take on it all. We'll also be talking to special guests from the world of politics and beyond - and hear from ITV's political correspondents based around the country to find out what's happening beyond the Westminster bubble.
 
In an overwhelmingly woke comedic landscape, right-leaning stand-up Geoff Norcott is a rare beast. In WMPT he gets to the heart of what ordinary people think about social and political issues. Whatever the contentious subject – he’ll be honest and blunt, but without being a dick. Mostly. Geoff has appeared on Live at the Apollo, Mash Report, Question Time, Mock the Week and pops up frequently on UK political debate programmes. He’s also written for shows ranging from Have I Got News For You ...

Two academic experts join The Conversation's politics editor, Laura Hood to discuss the key election issues. We’ll of course be talking about Brexit, but we also want to get to grips with the kinds of issues you’d normally expect to hear about in an election, like the state of the economy and what each party has to say about immigration, the NHS and schools. We’ll keep you updated on who’s ahead in the polls. And we’ll also cut through the spin of what’s dominating the headlines.
 
Hey Guys! I'm Naomi Eluwa (a.k.a. One Millennial's Voice) and on this account I discuss politics as I feel like more people need to be aware of what is happening in the world around them. I hope that these podcasts will encourage people to go off and do their own research to gain a better understanding of politics both domestically and internationally. I hope you enjoy the podcasts and if you do please feel free to like the episodes and follow :)
