When it comes to understanding political issues, Richie is a self confessed toddler. That’s why he’s enlisted the help of Steve, his politically savvy drinking buddy, to help him understand how government effects our everyday lives and our interactions with each other.
Join them, as they break down big political issues into comedic bite size bits and try to figure out, What am politics?
What do you know about the House of Lords? If you're like Richie, then all you have is a vague assumption that they all sound like Nigel Thornberry. Turns out this was only partially true. In this week's minisode, Steve teaches Richie all about the UK's second chamber of parliament.
Our lives, countries, and cultures are more interconnected than ever before. Globalisation. Is it good? Is it bad? Does it work when placed into the chorus of "Elevation" by U2? Join Steve and Richie as they try figure all this out.
People are rioting in the streets of France. The Federal Government of the United States has been shutdown for a month. The UK parliament can’t pass a Brexit deal or get rid of the Prime Minister. And Ireland’s Taoiseach wants people to stop eating burgers.
Contrary to popular belief, when the president of the USA wants to travel long distances he doesn't climb into a large medieval catapult and get launched vaguely in the direction of his desired destination. Air Force One, his preferred method of getting around, is much more elaborate and is worthy of it's own special minisode.
