Podcast: Nice

Ooooh, maps. Image: Getty.

This is another guest-presented episode, at least of sorts. Back when we started this thing in early 2016, we had a proper producer: a guy called Roifield Brown, who makes all sorts of lovely podcasts. One of them is a music and interview-themed one called Friday 15, and a few weeks ago he was kind enough to invite me on to talk about my lifelong obsession with maps.

So, this is that episode. For once, someone is going to interview me – and you get to listen to some tunes, too. You can subscribe to Friday 15 here.

Incidentally, we apologise for the delay to the Christmas special. We hope it should be with you next week.

(No, this episode is not about Nice.)

Podcast: Global Britain and local Liverpool

This week, two disparate segments linked by the idea of trading with the world. Well, vaguely. It’s there, but you have to squint.

First up: I make my regular visit to the Centre for Cities office for the Ask the Experts slot with head of policy Paul Swinney. This week, he teaches me why cities need businesses that export internationally to truly thrive.

After that, we’re off to Liverpool, with New Statesman politics correspondent Patrick Maguire. He tells me why the local Labour party tried to oust mayor Joe Anderson; how the city became the party’s heartlands; and how it ended up with quite so many mayors.
