The Echo Chamber Podcast

Please join us at patreon.com/tortoiseshack The overwhelming response to the end of 14 years of Tory Party rule seems to be relief. But that's far from the whole picture. To discuss all of this we are rejoined by writer, activist and commentator, Emma DeSouza and Shrapnel cohost Sam Mcilwaine. We look at the implications for the island of Ireland and why we seem to have too much political theatre at the moment and not enough doing the job of governing and improving the lives of citizens.

But then it happened and all the worst fears about the Gone Man vs the Con Man came to life on screen. So we relented and got Colorado-Based Economist and friend of the pod, Constantin Gurdgiev on to talk through the slow moving car crash and all of the implications it has for America, the Presidency, Ukraine, NATO, the BRICS countries and the "West." We tried to keep it light. But this was a total disaster for Joe Biden. Th ..read more
