58. US politics: midterms meanings with Matthew Doyle

With hot-takes still coming fresh off the Twittersphere and votes still to be counted in many states, Matthew Doyle – previously special advisor to Tony Blair – comes on the pod to speak to Conor Pope and Alison McGovern about his key takeaways from last Tuesday night.

Also on the show, Alison discusses the refugee crisis following her trip to Lebanon, where over a million displaced Syrians now live.
