Bozilla vs King Dom – with special guest Emma Kennedy

The Bunker

Whoever wins, we lose… As Dominic Cummings takes a wrecking ball to the Prime Minister he made, writer Emma Kennedy joins us to ask who will win this particular Battle of the Bastards. Plus, if social media is so toxic that Premier League footballers are boycotting it, should we end anonymity online? And are quiz shows to blame for the state of politics?  “Let’s all grab a sun lounger and enjoy the weapons-grade spite from Dominic Cummings.” – Emma Kennedy “My main emotional response to all of these leaks is hilarity and joy.” – Ian Dunt “Carrie Symonds’ flat decor is like a Home Counties version of Trump Tower” – Emma Kennedy “Number 10 was once our version of The West Wing. Now it’s like the Tweenies have taken over.” – Ayesha Hazarika “The old producer of HIGNFY told me that putting Boris Johnson on TV was the biggest regret of his life.” – Emma Kennedy Presented and produced by Andrew Harrison with Ayesha Hazarika and Ian Dunt. Assistant producers: Jacob Archbold and Jelena Sofronijevic . Music by Kenny Dickinson. Audio production by Alex Rees.
