This edition of our Heads apart? podcast asks: Should we be afraid of populism? We explore the phenomena of populism and consider arguments for why we should, or should not, be concerned about it. We are joined by Tim Bale, Professor of Politics and Director of Mile End Institute at Queen Mary University of London, and Matthew Elliott, ex-Chief Executive of Vote Leave and NOtoAV and Founder of Taxpayers’ Alliance.

Political analysis today can be shouty and superficial, with people shaming and stereotyping those who disagree with them. We defiantly 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.
