Funny and Informative
Tiernan normally includes a serious interview in each episode, but surrounds it with jokes and off-kilter descriptions of politicians. I love the various ways he describes officials, and always describes Liam Fox as disgraced, and adds in an extra "the disgrace" for fun.
I follow politics on TV and in the paper, and the interviews Tiernan airs are not your normal political run of the mill interviews. He gives them time to go through their arguments / explain what they are attempting to do, and is supportive of their aims.
I find the podcasts funny and informative and would recommend it to anyone who's looking for a bit of fun and education.

Great show, funny and informative
An excellent podcast that manages to be both funny and informative throughout. Really well researched and manages to cut through the bluster and misdirection of political news and quotes to their meaning and consequences. The guests are always hugely knowledgeable and most importantly are given the time to speak without interruption and demonstrate their expertise. Tiernan Douieb is an engaging host who superbly combines politics with comedy.

One of my favourite political podcasts
One of my favourite podcasts since I saw Tiernan live on stage, where he was brilliant too and mentioned this podcast. Finally someone who stands up against Brexit and it funny at the same time. Easy to listen too and informative as well.

How to survive life in the UK with a smile.
Tiernan does a wonderful job of keeping listeners up to date with political shenanigans in the UK and he regularly interviews the most interesting people about subjects near and dear to them.
I do not know how he does it, but manages to make an hour feel like ten minutes.
If you haven't already heard this podcast, its worth a listen for the jingles alone. :)
