This special edition of our Heads apart? podcast looks at the current state of the election. We explore why the polls are suggesting a considerable Conservative lead, what is similar and what is different compared to 2017, and what long-term political trends have led us here. We are joined by Paula Surridge, Senior Lecturer at the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies at the University of Bristol, and Ben Page, Chief Executive of Ipsos MORI.

Political analysis today can be shouty and superficial, with people shaming and stereotyping those who disagree with them. We take a different approach. Our podcast brings together people with different views to engage in respectful, thoughtful and detailed discussion on major political and cultural issues.
