  • This is the most interesting of all the uk political podcasts

    Simply put it’s analysis over activism. (Which is are these days). You may agreed or disagree with the positions that Alison and Liam may take, but they are always well thought out and considered. They avoid the all too common ad hominem attacks and provide space for views that may not be fashionable this month. You very rarely get this type of balance in other more popular political podcasts.

  • What he said…

    Echoing the words of an email read out on 6th June ‘24, ‘Thank you, Liam, Allison and rest of Planet Normal team for all the time and effort you continue to put in to this podcast.’ You never let the voice of reason or reasoned view down. I’ve been a listener since the early days of the rocket and look forward to every new episode.
