Sky News launch ‘Electoral Dysfunction’ political podcast


Sky News launch ‘Electoral Dysfunction’ political podcast

Beth Rigby, Jess Phillips and Ruth Davidson unite for the audio experience…

Beth Rigby, Sky News Political Editor:

“This is a huge political year as we gear up for what could the most seismic UK election in a generation. But voters aren’t feeling it, with people across the country telling me politics isn’t working. Each week, across different issues, I’ll be asking why and looking for solutions through frank conversations with two of the most compelling, engaging and honest women who have worked in politics.”

Three political powerhouses will unravel the spin in the new Sky News podcast, Electoral Dysfunction.

Each week, Sky News Political Editor Beth Rigby, Labour MP Jess Phillips and former leader of the Scottish Conservatives Ruth Davidson will bring their no-nonsense styles and decades of experience for an unvarnished view on the week in Westminster and beyond.

As an election draws closer, the trio will look at our political leaders and their policies – how they’re written and how they’re sold to voters – to explain what’s really going on.

Giving listeners the best insight on how politicians are trying to win them over at home, the trio will also be touching on some of the other elections around the world, in what is the ultimate election year as more than half the world’s population goes to the polls in dozens of countries across the globe.

David Rhodes, Sky News Executive Chairman:

“There’s no shortage of voices in Westminster today- but there is an acute shortage of voices like Ruth Davidson and Jess Phillips. Beth Rigby, Ruth and Jess will offer a lively, challenging and influential look at our politics today.”

And with so much at stake, the group will work out which politicians will come out on top and who is having an Electoral Dysfunction.

Electoral Dysfunction launches 1st March with episodes available every Friday on all podcast platforms.
