Monkeypox has hit the headlines with its spread in Europe. What is it? How do we deal with it? And should we be worried? With people on high alert to illnesses due to COVID, we unpack the differences and put context around what’s really going on. Dr. Charlotte Hammer, a fellow in emerging infectious diseases at Downing College Cambridge, explains the virus to Jacob Jarvis.  “Monkeypox actually does not come from monkeys, it comes from rodents in central Africa.”  “The symptoms are pretty unspecific. A fever, backache and muscle pain, progressing onto a rash are all common.”  “In medical terms, monkeypox is a mild but unpleasant disease.” “At the moment, there is very limited risk to the general population.” https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast Written and presented by Jacob Jarvis.

As scientists seek extraterrestrial life, what would we do if we actually found it? How would we manage first contact, and could we even communicate with aliens? Franck Marchis, a senior planetary astronomer from the SETI Institute, unpacks the prospect with Andrew Harrison – and the idea aliens might already know we’re here, but we’re too boring for them to care. “The most important question is intelligent life.”  “This discovery will not be a big surprise for a lot of humans on this planet.”  “If we find a civilisation slightly more advanced to us, maybe 100 years, they may be much more intelligent in terms of technology.”  “We may not see them because perhaps their technology is invisible to us.”  “We have been visible as a civilisation for at least 100 years, so they know we are here if they have slightly better technology.”  “I believe that there is microbiological life everywhere, but the key thing is the I in SETI - intelligence.” “It's obvious if you analyse our planet that there is a civilisation there.” “Maybe the future of our civilisation is purely mechanical or technological rather than biological.” https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast Written and presented by Andrew Harrison.

As the Prime Minister is caught red wine handed, we discuss the crises facing Britain alongside the partygate furore. We unpack the further issues looming as the cost of living situation goes from bad to worse. Is there an end in sight? Plus, why do we still pay so much attention to newspaper front pages? Lord Peter Ricketts, former national security adviser and ambassador to France, is this week’s guest.  “I don’t know why you would bring someone along to photograph your crime.” – Ahir Shah  “The only reason I can see for the Government not introducing a windfall tax is that it’s Labour’s idea.” – Ahir Shah  “It’s always popular with the Tory right to cut the Civil Service.” – Peter Ricketts “There’s one person who sets the culture in Government and that’s the Prime Minister.” – Peter Ricketts  “The world is beset with a whole series of different crises.” – Peter Ricketts “Those who are going to carry the blame for this are the civil servants, they’ve been lined up as scapegoats here.” – Peter Ricketts  “We’ve got a very rocky few years ahead.” – Peter Ricketts  “The frontpage is a news outlet's way of signalling to its readers what they should be paying attention to.” – Yasmeen Serhan https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast Presented by Andrew Harrison with Ahir Shah and Yasmeen Serhan.

Sue Gray’s final partygate report is due, meaning a long week ahead for Boris Johnson. What can we expect it to contain? Meanwhile, the cost of living crisis continues to deepen. Is a windfall tax on energy companies inevitable? Plus, we discuss Australia’s new Prime Minister and the latest from Ukraine. Justin Quirk is joined by Alex Andreou to tee up the days ahead. “It’s damaging the Government all the time because it has reversed all their soft ratings.” — Alex Andreou  “The charge of dishonesty is really difficult to get out of.’ – Alex Andreou  “A windfall tax is entirely logical.” – Alex Andreou  “Scott Morrison's loss is a blow to Johnson's government." – Alex Andreou "The notion that you're a shyster getting away with stuff sticks with the public." – Alex Andreou Presented by Justin Quirk with Alex Andreou.

NEW PODCAST: In a brand new 6-part series, Ian Dunt and Dorian Lynskey explore the histories of the most misrepresented ideas in politics. Here’s a taster of the first episode: McCarthyism. Was it really a crusade against communists or just a grifter’s opportunity that got out of hand? How did a witch-hunt morph into a way to denounce any critic, no matter who? And did Joe McCarthy really write the rulebook for Trumpism?

Blows to the head are commonplace in a range of sports – why do the risks often go unspoken? What happens to the brain when athletes take these knocks? Alex Rees speaks to Hana Walker-Brown about her book A Delicate Game: Brain Injury, Sport and Sacrifice, in which she chronicles degenerative brain disease, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, and the tragedies which have gone under the radar.  “There are things that are changing, but they’re changing very slowly.”  “The rules need to come from above and be implemented.”  “It’s important to note, concussion is a brain injury.” “To consider that sport might have to change gets people’s backs up.” “There’s something about the thrill of watching people get hurt.”  “The brain needs to be protected.”  https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast Presented by Alex Rees.

Authoritarian leaders are dominating 21st century politics. How did this new generation of strongmen rise to power? Gideon Rachman, chief foreign affairs commentator for the Financial Times, joins Nick Cohen to discuss his new book The Age of The Strongman, which covers the rise of the modern-day dictator, and what their leadership means for the world. “There was always going to be a backlash against the ‘end of history’ way of doing things.” “With the West having gone through the financial crisis, it wasn’t hard for China to say ‘we are the future’.” “For the key period of getting Brexit done, Boris Johnson did follow the strongman tradition.” “If Putin had won a quick victory in Ukraine, it would’ve been a huge boost for the strongman ideal.” ”Trump changed the rhetoric of America. He embraced Putin’s arguments.” https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast Written and presented by Nick Cohen. Group Editor: Andrew Harrison. Lead Producer: Jacob Jarvis.

Eleven of the fifteen postwar Prime Ministers went to Oxford. How did their privileged upbringing change the U.K? The FT’s Simon Kuper talks to Ros Taylor about how the entitled atmospheres of Oxford and Eton shaped modern Britain, detailed in his latest book Chums. “Boris Johnson was probably the best known person at Oxford in his day.” “It’s a great advantage in politics to have a recognisable brand, and Eton encourages that.” “Johnson learnt all his debating tricks from the Oxford Union.” “The problem with being Prime Minister is you have to offer substance, and Johnson can’t do that.” “Daniel Hannan is the Karl Marx of Brexit. He is one of the most important figures in British history.” https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast Written and presented by Ros Taylor. Group Editor: Andrew Harrison.

We look at the Government’s culture war push as people are told to just work harder to beat the cost of living crisis. What bargain bin policies are being used to shift attention from the hardship so many are facing? Plus, as those struggling are told to budget their way out of poverty, we look at the ludicrous money saving advice being dished out. And finally, the panel marks the end of the iPod. Freelance writer and columnist Hannah Fearn is this week’s guest.  “All politicians, no matter how charmed, reach a point where their luck runs out.” – Justin Quirk “A lot of aspects of poverty have been rendered invisible.” – Justin Quirk  “What I find weird is Britain's fetishisation of poverty.” – Marie Le Conte “Any government that doesn't care that children are growing up in poverty shouldn't be a government.” – Hannah Fearn “People are thinking about how to feed their children, not the Brexit election strategy.” – Hannah Fearn " “Blaming Brexit for what's happening at home won't cut it.” – Hannah Fearn https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast Presented by Andrew Harrison with Justin Quirk and Marie Le Conte.

Then at home, we discuss the latest Brexit wranglings over the Northern Ireland protocol. Plus, questions of Keir Starmer’s leadership persist. Is he really in trouble? Ros Taylor is joined by Yasmeen Serhan to tee up the week ahead, and glance back at the weekend’s Eurovision contest.  “Ukraine has exceeded people’s wildest expectations.” – Yasmeen Serhan  “Putin has created a larger and more attractive NATO.” – Yasmeen Serhan  “With the protocol it feels like we are back in 2019 again.” – Yasmeen Serhan “I was primed for the UK to not win any points because that’s what I’d been told always happens.” – Yasmeen Serhan  www.patreon.com/bunkercast  Presented by Ros Taylor with Yasmeen Serhan.

Joe Biden’s poll ratings have been underwater for months. What is the state of his presidency? Dorian Lynskey speaks to Dr. Thomas Gift, founding director of UCL’s Centre on US Politics, to discuss the Democrat’s tenure so far. Is a Trump rematch on the cards, and could Biden win again? And if not him, could anyone else come to his party’s rescue in 2024? Plus, what will the prospect of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade mean for the Democratic leader? “If I look at the democratic field right now, I can't see a very deep bench.” “If Trump does run again it becomes less of a referendum of the last 4 years, and more about who voters prefer - Trump or Biden?” “There have also been factors outside of Biden's control that have contributed to his low polling numbers.” “The notion of Trumpism, and what this represents, is just so strong.” https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast Written and presented by Dorian Lynskey.

How do we talk to radicals and terrorists who are bent on reshaping society through violence? Charlotte McDonald-Gibson was at Brussels Airport during a terror attack in 2016, and wanted to understand what drives people to such acts. She joins Justin Quirk to discuss her book Far Out: Encounters With Extremists, where she finds out what lures people into fringe groups.  “The human emotions that lead people to these groups are universal across ideologies.”  “Everybody in the book was under 25 when they went through that radicalisation process.”  “The feeling of alienation remained the same, whatever the circumstances were.”  “Self-radicalisation happens online now.”  “We can’t ignore people who’ve been drawn to extremist beliefs.”  “I don’t think we’ve seen the full impact of COVID on extremism.”  https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast Written and presented by Justin Quirk.

With the prospect of Roe v. Wade being overturned, we unpack the movement against abortion rights in the United States. A leaked draft Supreme Court decision indicates the landmark decision is set to be struck down – what would that mean for American society? Iowa-based writer Lyz Lenz joins Ros Taylor to discuss how the country reached this moment of reckoning, and what could happen next. “Since 1973 we have seen a slow erosion of the ability to access abortion services.” “There has been a Conservative plan to appoint judges that would overturn Roe v. Wade.” “The justices are pushing a minority viewpoint in overturning Roe v. Wade.” “Other rights could be up for debate, such as the right to gay marriage.” “A lot of Americans were very comfortable and thought this day would never come.” “Being able to access the pill saved my life and my career.” https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast Written and presented by Ros Taylor.

Jamie Driscoll, the Labour Mayor of the North of Tyne, is this week’s special guest and Belfast-based journalist Amanda Ferguson also drops in to unpack the Northern Ireland assembly results.  “People don’t trust Johnson, but there is also an element of them not trusting anyone at all.” – Jamie Driscoll “Labour are one-nil up at half time, but the Tories might be about to take their captain off.” – Jamie Driscoll “Two million people had to skip meals last month, but here we’re talking about a guy having a curry.” – Jamie Driscoll  “The scenarios aren’t all good for Keir Starmer, but they are good for Labour.” - Marie Le Conte “What people want is some hope, they want a way out.” – Jamie Driscoll  “I heard Boris Johnson is cutting back and he’s only going to have silver wallpaper now.” – Jamie Driscoll “The alternative to saying ‘try own-brand products’ is telling people ‘you’re on your own’.” – Ahir Shah https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast Presented by Alex Andreou with Ahir Shah and Marie Le Conte.

Alex Andreou is joined by Charles Arthur, former technology editor of The Guardian and author of Social Warming: The Dangerous and Polarising Effects of Social Media, to discuss what the billionaire tech mogul might do with the site.  “You have to distinguish between the Musk you see on Twitter and the one who's in business.” “Twitter does have enormous value to it, but no one has found a way to extract that value.” “Don't listen to what he says, watch what he does.” https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast     Written and presented by Alex Andreou.

You may have heard of China’s ‘Belt and Road Initiative’, but what actually is it? And what are Beijing's underlying motivations? Jelena Sofronijevic speaks to Eric Olander, co-founder and managing editor of The China Africa Project, and Raffaello Pantucci, a co-author of Sinostan - China’s Inadvertent Empire, to uncover the truth about Chinese economic investment abroad.    “The BRI, in many respects, is like a Rorschach test, where you can see anything you want into it.” - Eric Olander “If you had to boil it down to one central idea that defined the BRI, I'd have to say connectivity.” - Eric Olander “The BRI is China's way of expressing its foreign policy.” - Raffaello Pantucci “China's saying, let’s all just make money together. And underlying that, there’s an idea that has worked at home, that if we can make everyone rich and prosperous we can all get stability.” - Raffaello Pantucci “What bothers me a lot about the discourse surrounding Belt and Road, is that we take all the agency out of the host country.” - Raffaello Pantucci “China looks at Africa in far more political terms than economic terms.” - Eric Olander https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast     Written and presented by Jelena Sofronijevic.

Poor defence leads to lazy investigation, increasing the risk of injustice against the innocent. What kind of government wants a weak criminal justice system? Think hard about this, only one sort of government.

To paraphrase: ‘You don’t have petty corruption without grand corruption in place’. I agree. But, I suggest, that you can eradicate petty corruption even though grand corruption exists and the route to eradicating grand corruption lies in how you eradicate grand corruption. There is hope and experience and good people if you know where to look.

Last section has more than a whiff of sneering superiority. It is possible to care members of more than one species at the same time. Ros is sniffy about people feeling empathy and compassion for dogs, but not she believes "brown people." Isn't the lack of compassion for them the problem? Those she castigates wouldn't be morally better people if they didn't care about dogs either... We should encourage others to extend their existing feelings of empathy and compassion, not use them as a reason to berate them.

Labour support “democracy and the rule of law”. I see no evidence of this and I would really like to.

Why does a British political podcast care about how the American police treat the American public?

My heroes in The Bunker were disappointingly simplistic in their analysis of British policing, they even compared the professional Service of England with the USA. This topic needs more work.

Great podcast! Quick feedback for "The Bunker" team, though—you simply cannot play this through Amazon Alexa! Why not? Because "The Bunker" and "Bunker" are names in use by other podcasts. It's not unique enough. "The Bunker UK Politics" is waaay less catchy, but at least voice recognition would find it. Hope this helps!

well said Naomi, my husband is my Superhero, he buys job lots of chopped tomatoes, tinned haricot/black eyed peas and other dry goods so we can make big pots of stews/chilli's/ragu's and freeze them. I would say to people do that now, I have no faith in the Tories at the best of times so a No Deal scenario is basically me going thin in matter of weeks after New Year. Brilliance pod today, big up to Naomi and Alex. #arghNoDeal

I'm slightly conflicted about Andrew Neil going. Being a Scottish woman and love hearing Scottish voices a little bit upset but Andrew Neil being what I call a right wing voice very happy. And what nutter is using Doritos in lasagne?!! They need educating right now

Normally really enjoy this programme but Naomi heavy handed comments about veganism really off-putting. Smug superior approach not a good look and regenerative agriculture (which can include animals) is the best approach to offset carbon.
