The Progressive Britain podcast

Alison McGovern has an unpopular opinion: she thinks that the beliefs and ideas of the centre left are as important and relevant now as they’ve ever been. Whether it’s Brexit, Trump, Syria, automation, the gig economy or the housing crisis, progressive values have so much to offer.

With Richard Angell and Conor Pope, she’s here to do something about it.

Every few days, Alison will be joined by a series of expert guests around the country – not just think tankers and Labour politicians, but people on the front line of local campaigns, to work out what we do next. We’re not here to review the news and discuss what’s happened this week. We want to solve tomorrow’s problems as much as today’s.

The centre left in this country has a voice. It’s The Progressive Britain Podcast. Subscribe now via iTunesacast and PlayerFM to be part of the conversation.
