Two of the UK’s most senior and well-known former politicians are launching a major new weekly podcast. Together, they will bring their wealth of economics knowledge, Westminster experience and different perspectives to audiences around the world.
With a General Election looming and the UK economy confronting persistent inflation, rocketing mortgage costs and structural changes following the pandemic and Brexit, Ed Balls and George Osborne will tackle the issues that will determine how Britain votes and the stories really affecting people’s pockets.
The podcast will take listeners inside Downing Street and the Treasury, to the city and to newsrooms - Ed and George will explain how politics really works and how decisions are reached.
The duo’s unparalleled experience of Number 11 will provide accessible and compelling economic analysis missing in the current podcast landscape, while holding the country’s leaders to account over their decisions.
