What The F*** Is Going On? with Mark Steel

WTF Productions

From the rise and fall of Boris Johnson to Putin's 'special operation' in Ukraine; from the cost of living crisis to sending refugees to Rwanda; award winning comedian Mark Steel takes an exasperated and frankly baffled look at the state of the UK and the rest of the world. Joined by comedian (and son) 26-year-old Elliot Steel for the 'youth's' perspective, and a special guest each week, with occasional contributions from the likes of a deceased cricketer and a woman who's overheard in a cafe, Mark tries to answer that age old question: What The F*** Is Going On?!

  • Great job Sean W, Rosie E and Elliot S

    Pls ask Mark for a tiny cut of the annual Patreon subscription I’ve just signed up to. Always love hearing Overheard Woman too. Get well soon, Mark. I had throat cancer 6 years ago and imagine your build up of radio/chemo treatment is tough to handle. All the best Mark, and to all of you.

  • Fantastic podcast from my favourite rabid Trotskyite!

    I don’t share many of Marks political views but I find him and his podcast super-funny and he comes across as such a nice guy. I love his characters (Fred Truman, George Galloway, Mike Concrete, Woman in cafe who’s husband is head of marketing for Pringles actos the whole of the Reigate area). Get well soon, Mark, we need more of your type of humour to show that lefties aren’t all angry, self-righteous, frothing at the mouth humourless dicks! They can also be funny and endearing like you!
