What Comes After a Career in Politics? In Britain, a Podcast.

·1 min

A podcast called ‘The Rest Is Politics’ has gained popularity in Britain over the past two years. The hosts, former politicians Alastair Campbell and Rory Stewart, leverage their political experience to discuss current issues, aiming to find common ground despite their differing political affiliations. The show’s emphasis on civility and its centrist approach have struck a chord with listeners seeking thoughtful, measured discussions in contrast to the polarized nature of politics. Other former politicians have followed suit, creating podcasts that bring together perspectives from across the political spectrum. This alternative to the intense environment of social media has been well-received by many.
